Budget Conference Committee Members Named

Formal Negotiations to Reach a Budget Compromise Underway; NAHC Members Urged to Contact their Members of Congress on the Conference Committee

As part of the agreement reached by Senators Reid (D-NV) and McConnell (R-KY) to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling, a bipartisan, bicameral Conference Committee was named to negotiate a budget for 2015. The Conference Committee – co-chaired by Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-WA) and House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) – begins work this week to reach a consensus between Mr. Ryan’s budget proposal and Ms. Murray’s.

There are 29 members named to the Conference Committee in total – including the entire Senate Budget Committee, four House Republicans and three House Democrats.

The Ryan budget has already been declared dead on arrival in the Senate, while the same can be said of Senator Murray’s budget in the House. The 29 conferees are tasked with coming up with a budget framework that will be acceptable to both the House and the Senate - a significant challenge given the current partisanship and gridlock in Congress.
