Liberals will Pass Budget

January 28th, 2009

Just in:

Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff plans to move an amendment to the budget requiring periodic economic status reports to Parliament starting in March.

Sources say that’s the price of Liberal support for the budget which Finance Minister Jim Flaherty brought down on Tuesday.

Ignatieff has said there are some good things in the budget, but the sources say the Liberals want to keep a close eye on how the money goes out.

Periodic economic status reports? That’s a housekeeping issue, and actually, a sensible one. There is no way the Conservatives let the budget fail on such a minor amendment: this budget will now pass.

    Periodical economic statements tied to each being a confidence motion.

    Good point Kursk, but I still think it’s a minor amendment.
