Budgeting for Disasters Act

This bill modifies the budget enforcement procedures that apply to federal spending for natural disasters and emergencies.

The bill includes provisions that

  • eliminate the requirements to adjust annual discretionary spending limits to accommodate additional appropriations for disaster relief and wildfire suppression;
  • increase the number of votes that is required to waive the Senate point of order against emergency spending designations, which exempt spending from discretionary spending limits; and
  • require the Government Accountability Office to report on spending for emergencies and disaster relief.
