President Donald Trump is seeking a $1 trillion budget that would cut the government’s budget by $1.5 trillion over the next decade.
The plan would be paid for by a $500 billion increase in tax rates and a $200 billion cut to defense spending.
It’s not yet clear how the deal will be reached.
The White House says the plan would fund the government through mid-December and avert a shutdown.
The Republican-led House and Senate are working on a version of the $1trillion budget.
It includes $2.7 trillion in spending cuts over 10 years.
Democrats are seeking a much larger increase in defense spending, $1,400 billion over 10 year.
It would also require a deep tax cut, and would have to be approved by the Senate and House of Representatives.
The administration has been pushing a $2 trillion plan since September.
But the Senate approved a $3 trillion budget in April that would keep the government funded through 2024, and a larger one in July that would fund through 2027.
