What’s Going on the Week of April 21

When lawmakers come back from the holiday weekend, they will be poised to start budget negotiations and to try to resolve a laundry list of major — and controversial — issues. That means a sprint toward the scheduled May 3 end of the 60-day session.

The top priority of the final two weeks will be to negotiate a budget for the fiscal year that starts July 1. The House early this month passed an $89.9 billion spending plan, while the Senate’s budget landed on the desk at $90.3 billion. While the overall budget totals are relatively close, that masks the myriad details negotiators will have to work out.
