To provide for a biennial budget process and a biennial appropriations process and to enhance oversight and the performance of the Federal Government.
Biennial Budgeting and Appropriations Act - Amends the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 to require: (1) biennial (currently annual) budget resolutions, (2) biennial appropriations Acts, and (3) biennial government strategic and performance plans.
