    GOP budget quietly eliminates rule requiring lawmakers to wait for CBO score before voting: Senate budget would scrap 28-hour wait time to vote

    :eusa_dance::happy-1::disagree: The GOP/DOPers know they lost this one as well. But we need the standard CBO Score
    to sweeten their pains over this one! For as long as possible.
    MAGA away GOPers and DOPers! :itsok::thewave::party:

    The Senate budget resolution released Friday would eliminate a two-year-old rule that prohibits the Senate from voting on a bill until 28 hours after the budget impact has been estimated by official scorekeepers.

    The resolution would scrap the rule that Republicans introduced in 2015 through the fiscal year 2016 budget resolution, which put the wait period in place between the Congressional Budget Office's (CBO) official cost estimate and a vote.


    The rule was meant to allow legislators and the public sufficient time to absorb and grapple with the costs of new legislation. It only applied to committee-passed legislation, meaning that leadership was already able to circumvent it for bills going directly to the Senate floor.

    Still, the change would not eliminate the regular requirements for a CBO score.: Senate budget would scrap 28-hour wait time to vote
