ROME (Reuters) - The Italian government is confident that the European Union won't open a disciplinary procedure over its budget after the ruling coalition agreed to revise it, an economy undersecretary said on Monday.

"We are optimistic," Massimo Garavaglia told state-owned radio RAI.

Italy's coalition government has agreed on the "numbers and contents" of the budget it will propose to Brussels in a bid to avoid disciplinary action over its plans to hike deficit spending next year, a League party spokeswoman said earlier on Monday.
