H.R. 2319 would cap noninterest Federal spending as a percentage of full employment GDP, to require that budgets and budget resolutions adhere to these caps, to enforce these caps, to increase financial transparency for mandatory programs, to provide for a line-item adjustment, to require the parings of significant spending increases and adjustments to the debt ceiling, and to provide for a Federal Sunset commission to assist Congress in eliminating Federal agencies and programs that no longer serve a public need or reforming those that are inefficient or ineffective in serving a public need.
