Supplemental Budget Conference Committee Back at Work. Higher Education Article Finished. The conference committee on the omnibus supplemental appropriations bill re-convened at 12:45 PM. It was past high noon, so Gary Cooper didn't stick around. The higher education article has been approved--both money and language--which would seem to indicate that the budget targets for each of the areas covered in the bill have been reached. That means a lot of things coming together throughout the day. I will provide details as they become available. Meanwhile, speaking of High Noon, how about a listen to "Do Not Forsake Me, O My Darlin'," the Oscar-winning song from the movie. Don't worry, more "waiting" songs throughout the day.
