June 27, 2018 Speeches
My amendment takes all the policy reforms in the budget resolution and writes those savings into the reconciliation instructions. This does not change a single recommendation that we have been debating. It simply implements them – about $3.55 trillion over ten years after removing interest payments and non-reconcilable items under the Byrd Rule.

And it requires the use of the e-verify system to assure that job training is provided only to those legally residing in this country and entitled to work here.
