In brief remarks on CNBC, Ross was asked about the state of the negotiations and whether he was optimistic that a new deal could be struck.
“I think there will be a proposal that we can take to the president,” he allowed. “Whether it will be a proposal that we'll recommend, and whether it will be a proposal that he will accept, are different stories.”
