ICYMI, in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act, the Brookings Institution held an event on June 6 that examined the challenges the nation is facing over the next 50 years and how well-equipped the congressional budget process is to deal with them. Among the speakers was long-time ABFM member Phil Joyce, of the University of Maryland, presenting his working paper, “The Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act at 50: Goals, effects, and possible reforms.”

Brookings has released the full video of the event, along with Phil’s working paper, here: “The Congressional Budget Act of 1974: The next 50 years.”
