From Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget:

“A Fiscal State of the Nation resolution has enjoyed broad bipartisan support across both chambers of Congress for years. Budget policy experts, legislators, and other stakeholders have repeatedly made the case for this commonsense reform, which would provide neutral, reliable information to the public about the state of our federal finances, since the 115th Congress. Increasing uncertainty about how we can continue to fulfill our fiscal obligations and the economic implications of government spending should motivate our leaders to grapple with these tough questions. A Fiscal State of the Nation would help create that opportunity and focus attention on these urgent issues. It would be wrong to let this practical addition to the legislative process continue to wither on the vine. The Senate should join their colleagues in the House, who approved the measure unanimously, and move to enact this resolution.”
