Federal Budget

Senate Republican leaders spent the day seeking ways to bring two or three of their members back into the partisan fold on President Bush's budget and tax cut proposals. Yesterday, an amendment supported by Senate Democrats and a few Republicans reduced Mr. Bush's signature tax cut by nearly 30 percent. But a second threat to the budget is brewing in the spending increases embodied by more than 120 pending amendments. NPR's David Welna reports from the Capitol.
