Senate Budget Action

Sometime in the next two days we will be asking you to contact your senators concerning an amendment being put together by Senators Harkin (D-IA) and Spector (R-PA).

Sens. Harkin and Specter are likely to co-sponsor a bi-partisan floor amendment to the FY07 budget resolution when it goes to the Senate floor this week. The amendment may offer $7 billion over the President’s proposed discretionary cap in an effort to get the overall budget for function 500 back to the FY05 level. The amendment is not likely to include an offset.

Please monitor this blog for a request for action on Tuesday afternoon, March 14th.
