ATLANTA (WAOK) The Federal Government will resume talks today about the budget.

Republicans and Democrats are involved in a dispute over cuts to the fiscal budget. The two groups disagree about several agencies receiving government funds. The EPA and Planned Parenthood are just two of the places Republicans would like to see cuts. Speaker of the House John Boehner has stated that neither side wants a government shutdown. According to Boehner, progress is being made, and there is no reason why an agreement can not be reached.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says the fighting over the budget is disappointing. However, Reid still remains optimistic that a resolution can be found before the end of the day.

On Thursday President Obama cancelled a trip to Indiana, to deal with the potential federal shutdown. The president says he expects the issue to be resolved by Friday.
