The House is expected to pass a 2018 budget resolution that sets the stage for Congress to make billions of dollars in cuts to federal retirement.
The resolution includes “reconciliation instructions,” which charges the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to develop legislative proposals to reduce the federal deficit by $32 billion over 10 years through reforms to civil service pensions.
