  •  PAYGO CRS (2+ / 0-)

    The Senate pay-as-you-go, or PAYGO, rule generally requires that any legislation projected to
    increase direct spending or reduce revenues must also include equivalent amounts of direct
    spending cuts, revenue increases, or a combination of the two, so that the legislation does not
    increase the on-budget deficit over a six-year period and an 11-year period. Without such
    offsetting provisions, the legislation would require the approval of at least 60 Senators to waive
    the rule and be considered on the Senate floor.
