The details of the Senate’s proposed budget deal have yet to be announced. It will most likely be a temporary measure.

But Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a Democrat from Rhode Island, says he hopes for a more lasting solution to come from the negotiations.

“We want to get back to what the Republicans have said they’ve been wanting for all this time, which is regular order,” Whitehouse told Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson. “And regular order is to let the appropriators do their work and negotiate between the House and the Senate on the budget and set a number and fill in the appropriations to the number, and move on.”
