Budget, Appropriations, and Tax

“Investing in Our Future”

One of the greatest constitutional powers of the United States Congress is the “power of the purse.” In addition to examining a range of fiscal policies, the CBC Budget, Appropriations, and Taxation Task Force is responsible for drafting the CBC alternative budget, which calls on the richest of the rich to pay their fair share to help advance all American families. The Task Force also develops appropriations priorities that make investments in our future, such as expanding access to high-quality education and workforce development, updating and modernizing our nation’s infrastructure, and strengthening ladders out of poverty. In regard to tax policy, the Task Force has and continues to fight for a fairer system that keeps money in the pockets of hardworking, middle-class families and incentivizes investment in historically underserved communities.
