After a weekend of movement in the fiscal cliff negotiations, House Speaker John Boehner was back at the White House for a 45 minute meeting Monday morning.

“The president and the speaker are meeting at the White House to continue their discussions about the fiscal cliff and balanced deficit reduction,” Boehner spokesman Michael Steel wrote in an email, providing no further details.

The meeting indicates that the men are still talking, though both sides say an agreement is not imminent. 

Shortly before noon, Steel emailed to say that the 45-minute meeting had concluded.
