RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

President Bush is admitting to making, quote, "a very difficult spending decision" that required "sensitive diplomacy." No, not the federal budget. It's the planning of his daughter Jenna's May wedding. Her big day will be held at her parents' house - the one in Texas not the big white one. Beyond that the details are top secret. Mr. Bush did reveal that negotiations with his future son-in-law were brief. Done deal, he told the young man.

It's MORNING EDITION.
