Sen. Patty Murray hands the gavel signifying chairmanship of the Budget Conference Committee to Rep. Paul Ryan.

Key members of the Senate and House sit down today to try to find a compromise on the 2014 budget. Rep. Paul Ryan, the former GOP vice presidential candidate and House numbers guy, is the chairman of the conference committee. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and chairwoman of the Senate Budget Committee, is the conference vice chairwoman.

We're "live tweeting" the hearing.
