Subject: Conference will not begin this weekend
There is positive forward progress in the effort to reach an agreement on budget allocations with the Senate. However, there is still a great deal to be worked out. Therefore, we will not begin conference this weekend. It is my hope that we will begin conference early next week.
I hope you enjoy your weekend.
We’ll have more on the budget as it develops. The Senate Appropriations Committee is scheduled to meet at 1 p.m.
