Dispatch from Jones St: Budget Update HHS

The HHS Appropriation Conferees are continuing their work on the budget.  As of  Friday, June 19, 2009 there were a few agreements between the House and Senate conferees but not a lot of consensus on issues such as SCHIP, provider rates or case management.

The Senate and House conferees adjourned for the weekend with no final plan for the HHS appropriation budget.  We are hearing that today there may be a meeting of this committee.  We will have more details when they become available.
