Report: Budget Negotiators Reach ‘Tentative’ Deal on FY 2016 Budget

CongressBudget negotiators in the House and Senate are finalizing a “tentative” agreement that seeks to align the upper and lower chambers’ versions of a fiscal year 2016 budget, Politico reported Wednesday.

Rachael Bade writes that Senate Budget Chairman Mike Enzi (R-Wy.) and House Budget Chairman Tom Price (R-Ga.) plan to close the deal by the end of the month, two weeks after the initial April 15 target.

Politico reports the main disagreements in negotiations focus on defense funding, reconciliation, Obamacare and the Medicare overhaul.

The Republican-led Congress is also working on fast-track procedures to send legislation to the president without Democratic votes and provisions against using Changes-In-Mandatory-Programs for the appropriation of mandatory spending, Bade reports.
