A concurrent resolution passed by both Houses of Congress setting forth, reaffirming, or revising the congressional budget for the U.S. Government for a fiscal year. A budget resolution is a concurrent resolution of Congress. Concurrent resolutions do not require a presidential signature because they are not laws. Budget resolutions do not need to be laws because they are a legislative device for the Congress to regulate itself as it works on spending and revenue bills.
A concurrent resolution passed by Congress presenting the Congressional Budget for each of the succeeding 5 years. A concurrent resolution does not require the signature of the President.
The budget resolution is the Congress’ annual framework that sets targets for total budget authority, total outlays, total revenues, and the deficit (on-budget), as well as discretionary and mandatory allocations within the spending targets. These targets guide the committees’ deliberations. A budget resolution does not become law and is not binding on the Executive Branch.
