Omnibus Appropriations Bill

March 23, 2018

Late on the evening of March 21st, Congress unveiled a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending package H.R. 1625, Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018, which includes funding for all of the agencies and programs through the remainder of Fiscal Year (FY) 2018, which ends on September 30, 2018. On March 22, by a vote of 211-207, a procedural vote  passed the House of Representatives amid objections from both Republicans and Democrats regarding procedures followed for voting on the bill and concerns over the increase in funding, as well as not knowing the substance of the 2,232 page document.
