Rep. Jim Moeller

In earlier messages I described the 3 budgets and what they do. Now I want to talk about the budget process. In other words – how do we decide what the budget looks like, what programs it covers etc.   We have to create a budget that both the Senate and the House supports.   This can be very challenging.
