Much of the debate about this years supplemental focused on the effect on the deficit of additional spending. Under budget rules, Congress does not offset spending that is designated as emergency. So much of the debate has focused on what types of spending are appropriately emergency spending, and offsetting non-emergency spending. Offsets can come from either rescissions, which cancel prior year budget authority BA, and then apply that BA to new spending, reducing the amount of new budget authority required, or mandatory program savings.
