Summary

In the Senate a biennial funding process applies to all Senate committees except Appropriations and Ethics, which have permanent authorizations for their staff and operating expenses. The Senate Committee on Rules and Administration has jurisdiction over committee funding resolutions and issues regulations governing committee funding and staff.

On February 28, 2017, the Senate adopted by unanimous consent S.Res. 62, authorizing expenditures by Senate committees for the period March 1, 2017, through September 30, 2017, the period October 1, 2017, through September 30, 2018, and for the period October 1, 2018, through February 28, 2019.

This report, which provides committee funding requests and authorizations for Senate committees in the 106th through 115th Congresses, will be updated as warranted.


Senate Committee Expenditures Resolutions, 115th Congress, and Funding Authorizations Since 1999

Background

The Senate biennial committee funding process applies to all Senate committees except Appropriations1 and Ethics,2 which have permanent authorizations for their staff and operating expenses. The Senate Committee on Rules and Administration has jurisdiction over committee funding resolutions and issues regulations governing committee funding and staff. Committee funding and staff are also regulated by Senate rules, especially Rule XXVI, clause 9, and Rule XXVII, as well as by statute. The funds authorized and allocated by resolution are appropriated in legislative branch appropriations acts.

Under Senate Rule XXVI, clause 9, each Senate committee (except Appropriations and Ethics) is required to report a funding resolution providing for its expenses for March 1 of that year through February 28 of the following year. The Senate took several steps in 1999 to move to a biennial funding process that more clearly reflects a fiscal year orientation. In subsequent funding resolutions, the aggregate authorization for each committee is apportioned among three calendar periods—from March 1 to September 30 of the first year of a Congress, from October 1 to September 30 of the following year, and from October 1 to the following February 28. This permits the Senate to identify the amounts authorized for each fiscal year and the subsequent appropriations required.

On February 28, 2017, the Senate adopted by unanimous consent S.Res. 62, authorizing expenditures by Senate committees for the period March 1, 2017, through September 30, 2017, the period October 1, 2017, through September 30, 2018, and for the period October 1, 2018, through February 28, 2019.

Table 1 provides the requested and the authorized levels of funding for committees for the 115th Congress. Table 2 through Table 10 provide committee funding requests and authorizations for Senate committees in the 106th through 114th Congresses. Table 11 through Table 19 provide the same information, calculated in constant (January 2017) dollars.
