  STATUS REPORT ON CURRENT SPENDING LEVELS OF ON-BUDGET SPENDING AND 
 REVENUES FOR FY 2013, 2014 AND THE 10-YEAR PERIOD FY 2014 THROUGH FY 
                                  2023

                                         House of Representatives,


                                      Committee on the Budget,

                                    Washington, DC, June 25, 2013.
     Hon. John A. Boehner,
     Speaker, Office of the Speaker,
     House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
       Dear Mr. Speaker: To facilitate application of sections 302 
     and 311 of the Congressional Budget Act, I am transmitting an 
     updated status report on the current levels of on-budget 
     spending and revenues for fiscal years 2013, 2014 and for the 
     10-year period of fiscal year 2014 through fiscal year 2023. 
     This status report is current through June 17, 2013.
       The term `current level' refers to the amounts of spending 
     and revenues estimated for each fiscal year based on laws 
     enacted or awaiting the President's signature.
       Table 1 in the report compares the current levels of total 
     budget authority, outlays, and

[[Page H4025]]

     revenues with the overall limits set in H. Con. Res. 112 
     (112th Congress) for fiscal year 2013 and H. Con. Res 25 
     (113th Congress) for fiscal year 2014 and the 10-year period 
     of fiscal year 2014 through 2023. This comparison is needed 
     to implement section 311(a) of the Budget Act, which creates 
     a point of order against measures that would breach the 
     budget resolution's aggregate levels. The table does not show 
     budget authority and outlays for years after fiscal year 2014 
     because appropriations for those years have not yet been 
     considered.
       Table 2 compares the current levels of budget authority and 
     outlays for action completed by each authorizing committee 
     with the ``section 302(a)'' allocations made under H. Con. 
     Res. 112 (112th Congress) for fiscal year 2013 and H. Con. 
     Res 25 (113th Congress) for fiscal years 2014 and the 10-year 
     period 2014 through 2023. ``Action'' refers to legislation 
     enacted after the adoption of the budget resolution. This 
     comparison is needed to enforce section 302(f) of the Budget 
     Act, which creates a point of order against measures that 
     would breach the section 302(a) allocation of new budget 
     authority for the committee that reported the measure. It is 
     also needed to implement section 311(b), which exempts 
     committees that comply with their allocations from the point 
     of order under section 311(a).
       Table 3 compares the current status of discretionary 
     appropriations for fiscal years 2013 and 2014 with the 
     ``section 302(b)'' sub-allocations of discretionary budget 
     authority and outlays among Appropriations subcommittees. The 
     comparison is also needed to enforce section 302(f) of the 
     Budget Act because the point of order under that section 
     equally applies to measures that would breach the applicable 
     section 302(b) sub-allocation. The table also provides 
     supplementary information on spending in excess of the base 
     discretionary spending caps allowed under section 251(b) of 
     the Budget Control Act.
       Table 4 gives the current level for fiscal year 2015 of 
     accounts identified for advance appropriations under section 
     601 of H. Con. Res. 25. This list is needed to enforce 
     section 601 of the budget resolution, which creates a point 
     of order against appropriation bills that contain advance 
     appropriations that are: (i) not identified in the statement 
     of managers or (ii) would cause the aggregate amount of such 
     appropriations to exceed the level specified in the 
     resolution.
       In addition, letters from the Congressional Budget Office 
     are attached that summarize and compare the budget impact of 
     enacted legislation during the FY2013 and FY2014 fiscal years 
     against the budget resolution aggregates in force during 
     those years.
       If you have any questions, please contact Paul Restuccia at 
     (202) 226-7270.
           Sincerely,
                                                        Paul Ryan,
                                                         Chairman.

  considered until future sessions of Congress.
\1\ The appropriate level for FY2013 was established in H. Con. Res. 112, which was subsequently deemed to be in
  force in the House of Representatives pursuant to H. Res. 5. The current level for FY2013 starts with the
  baseline estimates contained in Updated Budget Projections: Fiscal Years 2012 to 2022, published by the
  Congressional Budget Office, and makes adjustments to those levels for enacted legislation.
\2\ The appropriate level for FY2014 was established in H. Con. Res. 25, which was subsequently deemed to be in
  force in the House of Representatives pursuant to H. Res. 243. The current level for FY2014 starts with the
  baseline estimates contained in Updated Budget Projections: Fiscal Years 2013 to 2023, published by the
  Congressional Budget Office, and makes adjustments to those levels for enacted legislation.

                                  Congressional Budget Office,

                                    Washington, DC, June 20, 2013.
     Hon. Paul Ryan,
     Chairman, Committee on the Budget,
     House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
       Dear Mr. Chairman: The enclosed report shows the effects of 
     Congressional action on the fiscal year 2013 budget and is 
     current through June 17, 2013. This report is submitted under 
     section 308(b) and in aid of section 311 of the Congressional 
     Budget Act, as amended.
       The estimates of budget authority, outlays, and revenues 
     are consistent with the technical and economic assumptions of 
     H. Con. Res. 112, the Concurrent Resolution on the Budget for 
     Fiscal Year 2013, as revised and approved by the House of 
     Representatives.
       Since my last letter dated January 23, 2013, the Congress 
     has cleared and the President has signed the following acts 
     that affect budget authority, outlays, or revenues for fiscal 
     year 2013:
        Disaster Relief Appropriations Act, 2013 (Public 
     Law 113-2);
        Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations 
     Act, 2013 (Public Law 113-6); and
        Reducing Flight Delays Act of 2013 (Public Law 
     113-9).
           Sincerely,
                                             Douglas W. Elmendorf.
       Enclosure.
