Congress Moves Focus to Immigration and Guns

"After the Senate passed its budget this weekend, Congress is expected to pivot to issues such as immigration and guns before attempting a broader deal on taxes, spending and the national debt later this year," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"Capitol Hill fell quiet as lawmakers headed home for a two-week spring recess, the longest pause in the Capitol Hill budget wars in months. Before leaving town, the Senate early Saturday morning and the House last week passed nonbinding budget blueprints that laid out the parties' competing fiscal priorities."

President Obama "is expected to release his own fiscal 2014 budget in early April--months late and almost an afterthought now that Senate passed a Democratic budget in sync with White House priorities."
