Chairman Murray and the Senate Budget Committee held a hearing with the director of the Office of Management and Budget, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, to discuss the President's fiscal year 2015 budget proposal. 

In the hearing, Murray called the President's budget a strong proposal that can build on the two-year bipartisan budget agreement. 

“The President’s budget is a strong proposal for a long-term plan to build on our two-year budget deal, create jobs and broad-based growth, and expand opportunities for families and communities across the country. Congress proved in December that when we work together on a budget we can invest in our priorities and reduce the deficit—and I am hoping that Republicans will join us once again to continue that work,” Murray said.
