Senate-passed operating budget would spend $1 billion less than House budget

Earlier this week the Senate passed a 2015-17 operating budget that would spend $37.958 billion. That's an increase of $4.164 billion over 2013-15. The House has also passed a budget (see here); it would spend about $1 billion more.

The chart below compares the policy changes made by each budget proposal. We'll be writing more about the budget proposals. For more information in the meantime, listen to the last two episodes of our Policy Today podcast (here and here).
