The MSPA protects migrant and seasonal agricultural workers by establishing employment standards related to wages, housing, transportation, disclosures, and recordkeeping. The MSPA also requires farm labor contractors and farm labor contractor employees to register with the U.S. Department of Labor and to obtain special authorization before housing, transporting, or driving covered workers. The MSPA requires that any person owning or controlling any facility or real property to be used for housing migrant agricultural workers shall not permit such housing to be occupied by any worker unless copy of a certificate of occupancy from the state, khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES ADDRESSES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:54 Jan 24, 2020 Jkt 250001 local,or federal agency that conducted the housing safety and health inspection is posted at the site of the facility or real property.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This report is being published as required by the Statutory Pay-AsYou-Go (PAYGO) Act of 2010. The Act requires that OMB issue an annual report and a sequestration order, if necessary. SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Erin O’Brien. 202–395–3106. This report can be found at https:// www.whitehouse.gov/omb/paygo/. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Authority: 2 U.S.C. 934. Kelly A. Kinneen, Assistant Director for Budget. This Report is being published pursuant to section 5 of the Statutory Pay-As-You-Go (PAYGO) Act of 2010, Public Law 111–139, 124 Stat. 8, 2 U.S.C. 934, which requires that OMB issue an annual PAYGO report, including a sequestration order if VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:54 Jan 24, 2020 Jkt 250001 necessary, no later than 14 working days after the end of a congressional session. This Report describes the budgetary effects of all PAYGO legislation enacted during the first session of the 116th Congress and presents the 5-year and 10-year PAYGO scorecards maintained by OMB. Because neither the 5-year nor 10-year scorecard shows a debit for the budget year, which for purposes of this Report is fiscal year 2020,1 a sequestration order under subsection 5(b) of the PAYGO Act, 2 U.S.C. 934(b) is not necessary. The budget year balance on each of the PAYGO scorecards is zero because two laws, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019 (Pub. L. 116–37), and the Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2020, and Further Health Extenders Act of 2019 (Pub. L. 116–69), directed changes to the balances of the scorecards. Public Law 116–37 removed all balances included on the scorecards at the time of enactment, and Public Law 116–69 shifted the debits on both scorecards from fiscal year 2020 to fiscal year 2021. The changes directed by these laws are discussed in more detail in section IV of this report. During the first session of the 116th Congress, no laws with PAYGO effects were enacted with emergency requirements under section 4(g) of the PAYGO Act, 2 U.S.C. 933(g). Six laws had estimated budgetary effects on direct spending and/or revenues that were excluded from the calculations of the PAYGO scorecards due to provisions excluding all or part of the law from section 4(d) of the PAYGO Act, 2 U.S.C. 933(d). I. PAYGO Legislation With Budgetary Effects PAYGO legislation is authorizing legislation that affects direct spending or revenues, and appropriations legislation that affects direct spending in the years after the budget year or affects revenues in any year.2 For a more complete description of the Statutory PAYGO Act, see Chapter 11, ‘‘Budget Concepts,’’ of the Analytical Perspectives volume of the 2020 President’s Budget, found on the 1 References to years on the PAYGO scorecards are to fiscal years. 2 Provisions in appropriations acts that affect direct spending in the years after the budget year (also known as ‘‘outyears’’) or affect revenues in any year are considered to be budgetary effects for the purposes of the PAYGO scorecards except if the provisions produce outlay changes that net to zero over the current year, budget year, and the four subsequent years. As specified in section 3 of the PAYGO Act, off-budget effects are not counted as budgetary effects. Off-budget effects refer to effects on the Social Security trust funds (Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and Disability Insurance) and the Postal Service. PO 00000 Frm 00098 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4719 website of the U.S. Government Printing Office (https://www.govinfo.gov/ content/pkg/BUDGET-2020-PER/pdf/ BUDGET-2020-PER.pdf). This PAYGO Act’s requirement of deficit neutrality is based on two cumulative scorecards that tally the cumulative budgetary effects of PAYGO legislation as averaged over rolling 5and 10-year periods starting with the budget year. The 5-year and 10-year PAYGO scorecards for each congressional session begin with the balances of costs or savings carried over from previous sessions and then tally the costs or savings of PAYGO laws enacted in the most recent session. The 5-year PAYGO scorecard for the first session of the 116th Congress began with balances of costs of $3,293 million in 2020 and $1,646 million in 2021 through 2023. Added to those balances were the budgetary effects of PAYGO legislation through Public Law 116–36. Section 102 of Public Law 116–37 eliminated those balances, resetting each year of the scorecards to zero. The completed 5-year scorecard for the session shows that PAYGO legislation enacted during the session was estimated to have PAYGO budgetary effects that increased the deficit by an average of $514 million each year from 2020 through 2024.3 Section 1801 of Public Law 116–69 deducted the costs from the scorecard in 2020 and added those costs to the scorecard in 2021. Therefore, the 2020 column of the scorecard is zero and the 2021 column reflects a debit of $1,028 million. The 10-year PAYGO scorecard for the first session of the 116th Congress began with balances of costs of $2,064 million in 2020 and $1,032 million in 2021 through 2028. Added to those balances were the budgetary effects of PAYGO legislation through Public Law 116–36. Section 102 of Public Law 116–37 eliminated those balances. The completed 10-year scorecard for the session shows that PAYGO legislation for the session increased the deficit by an average of $657 million each year from 2020 through 2029. Section 1801 of Public Law 116–69 deducted the costs from the scorecard in 2020 and added those costs to the scorecard in 2021. Therefore, the 2020 column of the 3 As provided in section 4(d) of the PAYGO Act, 2 U.S.C. 933(d), budgetary effects on the PAYGO scorecards are based on congressional estimates for bills including a reference to a congressional estimate in the Congressional Record, and for which such a reference is indeed present in the Record. Absent such a congressional cost estimate, OMB is required to use its own estimate for the scorecard. Eleven of the bills enacted during this session had such a congressional estimate and therefore OMB was required to provide an estimate for the remaining PAYGO laws enacted during the session.
