Senate to Begin Work on Budget


This week, the Senate Budget Committee will begin work on a budget. Sen. Jeff Sessions, the Republican ranking member of the committee, announced in the Republican weekly address that Democrats will unveil their budget on Wednesday. The budget process is a frenzied one as all amendments must be voted on, and they only need a simple majority. This is often used to get political points, such as the defunding of programs. This will be the first time in four years that the Senate has a budget. Many Republicans have criticized the Democratic leadership for failing to pass a budget.
