03/29/2013 Weekly Domestic News roundup - NPR Diane Rehm Show: Congress approves a measure to avert a government shutdown next week. The continuing resolution keeps agencies funded through September, but the big fiscal battle still looms. The House passed Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan's 2014 budget; the Senate immediately rejected it. Democrats there are now preparing their own version. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid introduces a gun control bill with expanded background checks but without an assault weapons ban. And sales of previously owned homes in February increase to the highest level since 2009. A panel of journalists join guest host Tom Gjelten for the domestic hour of our Friday News Roundup.

Guests

Jerry Seib - Washington bureau chief for The Wall Street Journal.
Julie Hirschfeld Davis - national political correspondent, Bloomberg News.
Michael Scherer - White House correspondent for Time magazine.
