Congress Inching Closer to Self-Imposed Budget Deadline

Posted on November 22, 2013 by Dene Westbrook

Some optimism is coming out of Washington DC that House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senate Budget Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-WA) are making progress on talks to negotiate federal budget changes before their self-imposed December 13th deadline. If nothing changes, a new set of sequestration cuts to the tune of $91 billion will go into effect in early January 2014. As of right now there are no indications that eliminating the exemption on municipal bonds will be part of this budget/tax reform package being discussed. However, nothing is certain, so we will continue to monitor that issue closely.
