            ENFORCING BUDGETARY LEVELS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2019

  Mr. ENZI. Mr. President, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, P.L.115-
123, included an instruction to the chairman of the Senate Committee on 
the Budget to file allocations, aggregates, and budgetary levels in the 
Senate before May 15, 2018. Today I rise to submit the required filing 
found in that act.
  Specifically, section 30103 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 
requires the chairman to file: No. 1, an allocation for fiscal year 
2019 for the Committee on Appropriations; No. 2, an allocation for 
fiscal years 2019, 2019 through 2023, and 2019 through 2028 for 
committees other than the Committee on Appropriations; No. 3, aggregate 
spending levels for fiscal year 2019; No. 4, aggregate revenue levels 
for fiscal years 2019, 2019 through 2023, and 2019 through 2028; and, 
No. 5, aggregate levels of outlays and revenue for fiscal years 2019, 
2019 through 2023, and 2019 through 2028 for Social Security.
  The figures included in this filing are consistent with the 
discretionary spending limits set forth in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 
2018 and the most recent baseline from the Congressional Budget Office, 
CBO. CBO's most recent baseline was released in April 2018.
  In addition to the update for enforceable limits above, section 
30103(c) of the act allows for the deficit-neutral reserve funds 
included in title III of H.Con.Res. 71, the fiscal year 2018 
congressional budget resolution, to be updated by 1 fiscal year. 
Pursuant to this authority, all deficit-neutral reserve funds in the 
aforementioned title of last year's budget resolution are updated and 
available for use.
  For purposes of enforcing the Senate's pay-as-you-go rule, which is 
found

in section 4106 of H.Con.Res. 71, I am resetting the Senate's scorecard 
to zero for all fiscal years.
  All years in the accompanying tables are fiscal years.
  I ask unanimous consent that this statement and the accompanying 
tables detailing enforcement in the Senate be printed in the Record.
  There being no objection, the material was ordered to be printed in 
the Record, as follows:
