Lawmakers will get back to work on Capitol Hill this week after a two-week spring break. Just before leaving town, Congress passed the House and Senate versions of President Barack Obama's proposed budget. Now, the two chambers must work out a final version. And they'll be dealing with a whole slew of developments that occurred while the members were away.

Guest host Linda Wertheimer and NPR's David Welna look ahead to the issues Congress will face when it returns this week from Easter break.
