Bishop, Tim (NY)


REVISED Requires the Congressional Budget Office to review the accuracy of the macroeconomic impact analysis for any enacted bill or joint resolution.

Cicilline (RI)


REVISED Requires the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to include jobs impact statements (estimates of the number of jobs which would be created, sustained, or lost in carrying out such bill or resolution) using the CBO's existing analytical principles and procedures, for "major bills or resolutions" as defined in H.R. 1874.

Connolly (VA)


Subjects Congressional appropriations bills to dynamic scoring, and it changes the threshold to trigger such scoring to $1 billion.

Israel (NY)


Adds a bill's impact on state and local governments to the parameters that CBO must analyze in a supplemental analysis under this bill.

Jackson Lee (TX)


Requires CBO to include as part of their macroeconomic analysis estimates of the potential impact on HUB ZONE areas as defined by the Small Business Act.

Ryan, Paul (WI)


Changes the short title of the bill to the Pro-Growth Budgeting Act of 2014 and clarifies how macroeconomic analysis will be conducted for bills containing revenue provisions, which parallels the practice under current law for preparing cost estimates. Under the amendment, the Joint Committee on Taxation would be responsible for preparing the analysis for revenue-only legislation. For legislation containing both revenue and non-revenue provisions, JCT would be responsible for analyzing the revenue provisions and CBO would be responsible for analyzing the non-revenue provisions.

Schrader (OR)


Adds the language of HR 3236, Hold Congress Accountable Act, to the end of the bill to prevent Members of Congress from being paid during a government shutdown.
