PSC Welcomes Signing of the Bipartisan Budget Act 

Arlington, Va. (August 2, 2019)—The Professional Services Council (PSC) welcomed the President’s signing of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019 (H.R. 3877) today. PSC President & CEO David J. Berteau issued the following statement: 

“PSC has strongly advocated for congressional and executive branch actions to raise the Budget Control Act (BCA) caps for fiscal years 2020 and 2021 and deliver on-time appropriations. We applaud the enactment of this bipartisan agreement, as it is essential to timely appropriations, to full funding for all federal agencies, and to avoiding the devastating impact of sequestration on the missions and functions of both defense and non-defense agencies. 

Now, the real work begins. 

We urge the Appropriations Committees to finalize and Congress to enact all 12 spending bills in September to avoid another continuing resolution or government shutdown. CRs and shutdowns have serious, negative consequences for the government and the contractor community. The signing of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019 provides Congress with the necessary starting point to avoid both. 

Moving forward, PSC will continue to work with the Congress to help craft and enact the FY20 appropriations bills.”
