WASHINGTON, April 18—Sen. Sessions delivered closing remarks today at what he called a "faux mark-up"—a Budget Committee meeting at which Senators were not allowed to offer amendments or hold any votes on any aspect of a budget plan.

Sessions stated: "The fact is it's now three years—three years—into the execution of a deliberate and determined policy by the Democratic leadership of the United States Senate to avoid responsibility for the financial future of America. It's not acceptable for the Senate leadership to not face up to the challenge of our time."

Sessions went on, asking rhetorically: "Is it really okay to wait until after the election to vote? Is that what the American expect of us? Are they satisfied that we say, 'Oh, we can't take votes close to an election. That might be tough. We don't want to do that'? I don't think so."
