NTU Applauds Rep. Hern for Efforts to Restore Dynamic Scoring for Major Legislation

Representative Kevin Hern (R-OK) recently introduced H.R. 4959, the Pro-Growth Budgeting Act, with 16 cosponsors. NTU issued the following statement on the Pro-Growth Budgeting Act:

"National Taxpayers Union (NTU) applauds Representative Kevin Hern (R-OK) for introducing the Pro-Growth Budgeting Act, which would restore dynamic scoring requirements for major legislation after the House repealed those rules in the 116th Congress. Dynamic scoring, or macroeconomic impact analysis, is a critical tool that helps lawmakers understand the impact legislation will have beyond just the spending and revenues of the federal government. It is both prudent and sensible to ask the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to produce a dynamic score for legislation that would have an impact of $40 billion or more. NTU hopes that the House will quickly advance this legislation, and that lawmakers will frequently use this valuable process to consider the full economic impact of major bills."
