Short Term Funding Bill Expected

Congress is likely to pass a three day short term funding bill before January 15th, the last day of temporary funding for the government under the current continuing resolution.  This is necessary in order to buy more time for Congress to move the expected bipartisan funding plan for the remainder of the fiscal year.

It is expected that top appropriators will unveil a massive $1.012 trillion omnibus spending package late tonight that would fund nearly every corner of the federal government for the rest of the 2014 fiscal year. House Appropriations Chairman Harold Rogers (R-KY), said that the measure would incorporate spending directives for all 12 of the annual appropriations bills.
