Delaney pushes economic legislation

July 29th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) has filed the Honest Dynamic Scoring Resolution, legislation that would make sure that the economic benefits of smart public investments in areas such as infrastructure, research and development and education are accurately reflected in budget projections. The bipartisan legislation was introduced with lead Republican Congressman Richard Hanna (NY-22) and Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52). 

Under current House rules, macroeconomic or “dynamic” scoring – scoring that takes into account the secondary benefits of legislation – is effectively limited to tax bills. The bill would ensure that all major bills are scored using the same methodology and that the economic benefits of investing in roads, bridges and transit, of educating the next generation and of supporting new technological and scientific innovation are accounted for.
