2013 Budget Deal


Congress is nearing a budget deal, according to staffers familiar with the latest round of negotiations. Lawmakers are racing to complete and approve a budget proposal before the House adjourns on Friday. The longer the process extends, the more likely it seems that the budget will be much more modest than the "grand bargain" many had desired. Still, some hope the legislators will address issues ranging from the sequester to pension reform to long-term unemployment to the government shutdown.
