             BUDGET ENFORCEMENT LEVELS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2021

  Mr. ENZI. Mr. President, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 20l9, P.L. 116-
37, included an instruction to the chairman of the Senate Committee on 
the Budget to file allocations, aggregates, and budgetary levels in the 
Senate between April 15, 2020, and May 15, 2020. Today, I rise to 
submit the required filing to fulfill that instruction.
  Specifically, section 205 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019 
requires the chairman to file: (1) allocations for fiscal year 2021 for 
the Committee on Appropriations; (2) allocations for fiscal years 2021, 
2021 through 2025, and 2021 through 2030 for committees other than the 
Committee on Appropriations; (3) aggregate spending levels for fiscal 
year 2021; (4) aggregate revenue levels for fiscal year 2021, 2021 
through 2025, and 2021 through 2030; and (5) aggregate levels of 
outlays and revenue for fiscal years 2021, 2021 through 2025, and 2021 
through 2030 for Social Security.
  The figures included in this filing are consistent with the 
discretionary spending limits set forth in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 
2019 and the Congressional Budget Office's March 2020 baseline, as 
adjusted to reflect legislation enacted since the publication of the 
baseline. Enforceable figures in this filing exclude the direct 
budgetary effects of provisions in legislation enacted after the 
release of the baseline that were designated as an emergency pursuant 
to section 4112 of the fiscal year 2018 congressional budget 
resolution, H.Con.Res. 71, 115th Congress, which excludes those effects 
from calculations related to sections 302 and 311 of the Congressional 
Budget Act of 1974. In instances where enforceable discretionary levels 
are required to be adjusted for spending designated as an emergency 
pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act, 
those adjustments are included.
  In addition to the update for enforceable limits above, section 205 
of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019 allows for the deficit-neutral 
reserve funds included in title III of the fiscal year 2018 
congressional budget resolution to be updated by 3 fiscal years. 
Pursuant to this authority, all deficit-neutral reserve funds in the 
aforementioned title of the fiscal year 2018 congressional budget 
resolution are updated and available for use.
  For purposes of enforcing the Senate's, pay-as-you-go rule, which is 
found in section 4106 of the fiscal year 2018 congressional budget 
resolution, I am resetting the Senate's scorecard to zero for all 
fiscal years.
  All years in the accompanying tables are fiscal years.
  I ask unanimous consent that the accompanying tables detailing 
enforcement in the Senate be printed in the Record.
  There being no objection, the material was ordered to be printed in 
the Record, as follows:

           ALLOCATION OF SPENDING AUTHORITY TO SENATE COMMITTEE ON APPROPRIATIONS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2021

  conference reports that qualify for adjustments to the discretionary spending limits as outlined in section

  in this table reflect enactment of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (P.L. 116-127), the Coronavirus
  Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (P.L. 116-136), the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care
  Enhancement Act (P.L. 116-139), which generated $178,246 million in outlays from appropriations that were
  designated as emergencies pursuant to section 251 (b)(2)(A)(i) of BBEDCA.
