Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, with six Republican colleagues, sent a letter to Majority Leader Harry Reid Thursday, urging him to unveil the Democrats’ budget proposal.
Last week, Democrats on the Senate Budget Committee, chaired by Sen. Kent Conrad of North Dakota, announced that a budget proposal had been finalized and that it would be released as early as this week. So far, only the Democratic caucus has seen the proposal.
“We ask that you, as Majority Leader, call for the latest Democratic budget to immediately be made public, in all of its detail, and brought through the statutorily-mandated legislative process,” says the letter. “If our colleagues wish to raise taxes or propose spending cuts, the American people have a right to see that plan on paper.”
