Leadership emerges with possible compromise

House and Senate GOP leaders just emerged from two hours of closed-door meetings saying they have a compromise proposal on highway bonding. Now, “We’ll go to caucus,” said House Speaker Lawerence Denney. The proposal is acceptable to leadership on both sides, “contingent upon whether or not we can sell it to our caucuses – which both sides may be in trouble,” Denney said with a chuckle. GOP caucuses will meet behind closed doors. If the caucuses accept the plan, he said, “Then we (leadership) will have to meet again to discuss procedure.”
