GOP Leaders Will Take Time Regarding choosing CBO Director
CBO report timeline. The decision on a director is unlikely to be made ahead of the CBO’s release of its annual Budget and Economic Outlook, the projected spending, revenue and deficit baseline that is due later this month or in early February. Current director Douglas W. Elmendorf is expected to testify before the Budget committees after the report’s release. Elmendorf’s second term as director ended Jan. 3, but he has agreed to stay on until the next director is appointed.
