Budget Conference Committee to Meet Next Week

Political News

Hemera/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — For the first time since the government reopened, all 29 members of the budget conference committee will meet next Wednesday, Oct. 30.

Last week, the heads of the House and Senate Budget Committees — Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash. — and the ranking members of the committees had breakfast to discuss the path forward for the budget conference.

As part of the deal struck to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling last week, the budget conference committee is required to produce a report by Dec. 13.
