|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
"This is a very constructive contribution. The House and Senate Budget
Committee leaders are the fiscal conscience of the Congress. They have come very
carefully to the conclusion that additional stimulus is needed and responsible.
This bi-partisan effort has helped shape the Administrations view and should
offer confidence to other members and the public that aggressive action on the
economy can be taken consistent with long-term fiscal discipline."
