Second Budget Conference Session Set

House and Senate conferees continue to work toward resolving the budget impasse before the December 13th deadline.  They have scheduled their second meeting for Wednesday, November 13th and are still trying to identify areas of potential common ground.  Right now, the most popular path forward would involve a one or two year funding deal that also includes some degree of sequester relief.  While both sides of the aisle agree that a small scale agreement is preferred, there are still significant differences over tax issues.
