Wicker Pledges GOP Will Adhere to Strict Spending Limits (Video)
As the Senate was preparing to finalize the fiscal 2016 budget resolution, both sides seem to want the spending blueprint to be an election issue next year.
National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Roger Wicker, R-Miss., for instance, is touting the new GOP majority approach as returning the Senate to normal operations.
“The new Republican majority came in, opened up the process, exhibited a determination to return to regular order, and so we have a major achievement today,” Wicker told reporters Tuesday.
The Senate is scheduled adopt the budget conference report before the end of Tuesday’s session.
