Jack Moore writes she brought up her idea on the Senate floor last week, where a House-Senate budget conference committee would discuss how to reconcile two competing budget plans for fiscal 2014.

Mikulski and House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) told Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash), co-chairs of the budget conference committee, to come up with a proposal on or before Dec. 2 in a letter.

“This is absolutely crucial because we cannot do discretionary spending for fiscal ’14 until we hear from the Budget Committee,” Mikulski said Tuesday, according to the report.
