NACO Legislative Analyis: Build Back Better Act

On November 19, the U.S. House passed the Build Back Better Act (BBBA), a $1.75 trillion reconciliation package that is offset with new increases in revenue.The legislation, which passed on a 220-213, is advancing by the budget reconciliation process, which allows both chambers to pass the bill with limits on procedural delays.Most significantly, reconciliation allows the U.S. Senate to bypass the filibuster and pass legislation with a 50-vote threshold so long as it meets a series of budgetary requirements.
