Budget News

Senate Republicans just announced in their caucus that an agreement on the budget was decided at 1 a.m. The budget process, according to President Burns, is that there is a four-pronged plan.

1. Pass bills (Done in early June)

2. Trailer bills (Bills to come soon to change some of the details in the budget bills already passed.)

3. Flat tax

4. Referral to a sales tax

The Republicans will now set up briefings with the (Republican?) members on the trailers, flat tax and referral to sales tax and may be pulling people off floor during COW to get that expedited.
