The Budget and the Economy

Mr. Chairman and Members of the Committee, it is an honor to appear before you to discuss the interactions between the budget and the economy. The focus of my testimony is the economic and budgetary effects of the tax cuts that were passed as part of the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 (EGTRRA), but that have not yet been implemented.
