Mikulski Calls For A Two Year Deal
Sequestration and the federal budget will be Topic One when the House and Senate resume work tomorrow. Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, has called for a two-year deal to replace sequestration cuts. But 2014 could be hard enough. House Republicans and Senate Democrats are $91 billion apart. They have different views on how to handle the second year of automatic cuts called for by the Budget Control Act. The conference committee wants to finish work by Dec. 13. The current continuing resolution expires Jan. 15.
