The Senate on Tuesday named 14 negotiators to meet with the House.

The House-Senate conference will have to sort out their differences on two dramatically different bills. The House bill, H.R. 4348, is a short-term extension of federal highway funds that includes a requirement to approve the Keystone oil pipeline. The Senate bill, S. 1813, is a two-year, $109 billion extension.
