                   PUBLICATION OF BUDGETARY MATERIAL


 REVISIONS TO THE STATEMENT OF COMMITTEE ALLOCATIONS, AGGREGATES, AND 
              OTHER BUDGETARY LEVELS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2019

                                         House of Representatives,


                                      Committee on the Budget,

                                                   Washington, DC.
       Mr. Speaker, I hereby submit for printing in the 
     Congressional Record revisions to the aggregates and 
     allocations set forth in the Statement of Committee 
     Allocations, Aggregates, and Other Budgetary Levels for 
     Fiscal Year 2019 published in the Congressional Record on May 
     10, 2018 pursuant to section 30104 of the Bipartisan Budget 
     Act of 2018 (Public Law 115-123). The revision is for new 
     budget authority and outlays for provisions designated for 
     Overseas Contingency Operations/Global War on Terrorism 
     pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced Budget and 
     Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 (BBEDCA), contained in 
     the conference report to accompany H.R. 5895, the Energy and 
     Water, Legislative Branch, and Military Construction and 
     Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act, 2019.
       The Statement of Committee Allocations, Aggregates, and 
     Other Budgetary Levels for Fiscal Year 2019 set the base 
     discretionary 302(a) allocation to the Committee on 
     Appropriations at $1.244 trillion, which is the sum of the 
     fiscal year 2019 discretionary spending limits under section 
     251(c) of BBEDCA. Section 251(b) of BBEDCA allows for 
     adjustments to the discretionary spending limits for certain 
     purposes including Overseas Contingency Operations/Global War 
     on Terrorism, disaster relief, and program integrity 
     initiatives.
       The conference report to accompany H.R. 5895, the Energy 
     and Water, Legislative Branch, and Military Construction and 
     Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act, 2019, contains $921 
     million in budget authority for Overseas Contingency 
     Operations/Global War on Terrorism. Accordingly, I am 
     submitting an adjustment for an additional $921 million in 
     budget authority to accommodate Overseas Contingency 
     Operations/Global War on Terrorism funding contained in the 
     conference report to accompany H.R. 5895. After making this 
     adjustment, the conference report to accompany H.R. 5895 is 
     within the fiscal year 2019 discretionary spending limits 
     under section 251(c) of BBEDCA, in addition to the aggregates 
     and the 302(a) allocation to the Committee on Appropriations 
     established by the Statement of Committee Allocations, 
     Aggregates, and Other Budgetary Levels for Fiscal Year 2019 
     filed on May 10, 2018.
       Budget enforcement provisions of H. Con. Res. 71 (115th 
     Congress) have been deemed to be in force by section 30104(f) 
     of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018. This revision 
     represents an adjustment for purposes of enforcing sections 
     302 and 311 of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974. For the 
     purposes of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974, these 
     revised aggregates and allocations are to be considered as 
     aggregates and allocations included in the budget resolution, 
     pursuant to the Statement published in the Congressional 
     Record on May 10, 2018, as adjusted.
           Sincerely,
                                                     Steve Womack,
                                                         Chairman.
