  • Mehlman Vogel Castagnetti Budget Conference Update 10/30/2013

    The Budget Conference Committee charged with reaching an agreement by December 13, 2013, held its first formal meeting on October 30, 2013, during which members made opening statements. By most accounts, the Committee is not expected to reach a so-called grand bargain. Rather, at most, lawmakers are aiming to reach a small deal to mitigate the impact of the next round of sequester cuts that become effective in mid-January 2014. Possible proposals in play including curbing postal service cost overruns, changes to federal workers’ pensions, additional means testing of the Part B premium, and farm bill-related savings. Although major tax or entitlement reforms are likely off the table, ECFC will remain vigilant as the talks get underway in earnest and will engage should the deliberations take a different direction.
