“Temporary-Effect Legislation and Fiscal Responsibility”
Sponsor
Norman A. Sugarman Tax Scholar-in-Residence Lecture
presented by the Center for Business Law & Regulation
OCT 9, 2007
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)

In recent years, Congress has passed an increasing amount of tax legislation that affects the budget for only a limited time ("temporary-effect legislation"). Most analysts have sharply criticized this practice, suggesting it allowed Congress to escape fiscal discipline.

  • Which legislation, "temporary" or "permanent" will facilitate greater fiscal responsibility on the part of the Congress?
  • What are the key factors influencing Congressional budget decision-making?
  • What are the effects of the tax laws they pass?
