In a narrow 216-212 vote, the House passed the Senate’s version of the 2018 budget resolution Thursday morning, which excludes cuts to the federal retirement system that were originally proposed.
The House decided earlier this week to forgo a lengthy conference over a concurrent budget resolution and simply adopt the Senate’s version, which does not include reconciliation instructions that propose billions of dollars in cuts to the federal retirement system.
