House Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process

Background

The House Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process is a subcommittee of the Rules Committee, a standing committee of the United States House of Representatives. Before a bill comes to the House floor, the Rules Committee passes a rule governing debate on that bill. link

from the Subcommittee's website:

According to the Committee rules, this Subcommittee has general responsibility for measures or matters related to relations between the Congress and the Executive Branch.

The principal law within the Subcommittee's purview is the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974. Also, the Subcommittee enjoys jurisdiction over budget process related provisions found in Part C of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 and the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990. The Subcommittee also exercises oversight of the congressional budget process.

In previous Congresses, the subcommittee has played primary roles in the drafting and passage of the line item veto, conducted extensive oversight of the budget process resulting in numerous reform recommendations and examined the impact of executive orders on the legislative process.
