Peterson-Pew Commission on Budget Reform

The Peterson-Pew Commission on Budget Reform has convened the nation’s preeminent fiscal and budget experts to make recommendations for how best to strengthen the budget process used by federal lawmakers. Significant attention to budget reform over the next few years is imperative given the current economic conditions, the tremendous amount of borrowing taking place to help stabilize the economy, and the large and growing promises for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefits.

The commission has produced one set of recommendations that address a host of shortcomings in current budget rules, concepts and processes and is preparing to issue a second set of recommendations in 2010.
