The House Budget Committee late Wednesday approved the latest budget from Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on a party-line 22 to 17 vote.

All committee Republicans voted for the fiscal 2014 plan, which now heads to the full House for floor consideration next week. The committee vote was smoother than last year’s process. That budget passed out of committee on a single vote margin after two conservatives — Reps. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) and Justin Amash (R-Mich.) — voted against it.
