Rand Paul calls for conference committee

September 29, 2013

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Sunday called for the formation of a conference committee to work out the differences between clashing House and Senate stopgap bills to keep the government funded.

"Why don't we have the conference committee on this? You could appoint one today, they could meet tomorrow and hash out the differences," Paul said on CBS' "Face The Nation. "That's the way it's supposed to work."

The bill the House passed early Sunday would delay Obamacare for a year and repeal the medical device tax. It is expected to be rejected Monday by the Senate, which has passed a stopgap bill without the health-care provisions.
