A reconciliation bill is a bill containing changes in law recommended pursuant to reconciliation instructions in a budget resolution. If the instructions pertain to only one committee in a chamber, that committee reports the reconciliation bill. If the instructions pertain to more than one committee, the Budget Committee reports an omnibus reconciliation bill, but it may not make substantive changes in the recommendations of the other committees.[1]

Once the bill is returned to the floor, Amendments to the bill can be offered, but must be germane and deficit neutral. Debate on reconciliation bills are not subject to filibuster.
