Gregg: Fiscal panel bill lacks the votes

By Walter Alarkon - 01/12/10 06:00 AM ET

There are not enough votes in the Senate to create a bipartisan commission to cut the federal debt, according to a key lawmaker.

Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) told The Hill on Monday that the proposal he’s pushing with Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) doesn’t have the 60 Senate votes necessary to pass. An amendment creating the fiscal commission will get a full Senate vote next week during a debate over a bill raising the debt limit.
