Lawmakers want overall budget numbers before Thanksgiving
from Government Executive
Top congressional appropriators are urging House and Senate budget conferees to agree by Dec. 2 on overall discretionary spending caps for fiscal 2014 and fiscal 2015. Setting the spending caps for the current fiscal year and fiscal 2015 should be the conference committee's "first priority," said Kentucky Republican Hal Rogers and Maryland Democrat Barbara Mikulski, who lead the House and Senate appropriations panels respectively, in an Oct. 31 letter to top members of the group tasked with reaching a budget deal before mid-January.
