Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate

The House and Senate returned from their two-week recess last week, resumed the budget battle in earnest, and advanced a transportation reauthorization one-step further.

Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) introduced his version of the fiscal year 2013 budget, a far cry from the budget request President Obama unveiled earlier this year. With appropriators on the two sides of the Capitol starting out more than $15 billion apart, many hearings and debates on the issue lay between now and the election, but suffice it to say that the House will not approve appropriations bills above the Ryan budget levels before the lame duck session, and at the same time, the Senate will not go below levels agreed to late last year.

Please see full issue below for more information.
