Ryan: Congress wrap-up budget, tax talks going slowly

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Paul Ryan says Congress may miss its Friday deadline to wrap up a huge $1.1 trillion spending bill and an ambitious renewal of tax breaks for businesses and individuals.

The Wisconsin Republican told a radio station in his hometown of Janesville that "it might take us more than just this week to get these issues put together correctly."

The spending bill would fill in hundreds of pages of line items to fill out the details of the October budget deal and fund the operating budgets of every Cabinet agency. The tax measure would renew dozens of tax breaks that typically are renewed only a year or two at a time. This year, both sides are working to make some of them permanent, which is proving tricky to do.
