13.34 COMMUNICATION FROM THE

DIRECTOR OF THE CONGRESSIONAL
BUDGET OFFICE

The SPEAKER pro tempore, Mr. EMERSON, laid before the House a communication, which was read as fol

lows:

CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE,
Washington, DC, January 6, 1996.

Hon. NEWT GINGRICH,
Speaker, House of Representatives, Washington,
DC.

other descriptive material provided by staff. It employs CBO's updated economic and technical estimating assumptions, which incorporate the economic effects of balancing the federal budget by 2002 and are described in the CBO memorandum "Economic and Budget Outlook: December 1995 Update." The analysis also assumes, as specified by staff, that the projected adjustment to reduce the formula bias in the consumer price index (CPI) will reduce the rate of growth of the CPI by 0.3 percentage points a year, which is the upper end of the range estimated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. CBO's December baseline assumes a reduction near the middle of the range.

Under these assumptions, the proposal would result in deficits of $153 billion in 1996 and $167 billion in 1997 and a surplus of $1 billion in 2002. Compared to the CBO baseline, the proposal would reduce the deficit by $220 billion over the next five years and by $583 billion over the 1996-2002 period. Table 1 summarizes the proposed policy changes. Table 2 shows the estimated savings from the changes in direct spending and revenues that would result from enactment of each title of the proposal. Sincerely,

DEAR MR. SPEAKER: The Congressional
Budget Office (CBO) has prepared a prelimi-
nary analysis of the President's budgetary
submission of this date. The analysis is
based on draft legislative language or on

CBO's December baseline assumes a reduction near the middle of the range. Discretionary savings specified by staff.
