nullFederal Budget Agreement Reached

The Senate is poised to approve a two-year bipartisan budget agreement in the coming days. The House passed the measure last week by a vote of 332-94. The bill was crafted by Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA). The agreement replaces a significant portion of the automatic cuts (sequestration) that were scheduled to take effect next month and ensures that both chambers are working from the same set of numbers when developing spending bills. The President is expected to sign the measure, which will ensure that a government shutdown is avoided in January.
