Senate Delays Omnibus, Avoids Shutdown
With a potential government shutdown looming, Senators and Representatives sent a spending package to Biden’s desk. In this crucial time, let’s pray for wisdom for congress.
From Just the News. The Senate on Thursday passed a one-week spending package that would extend the deadline for lawmakers to pass a full-year omnibus package to Dec. 23.
In a 71-19 vote, lawmakers backed the measure, sending it to President Joe Biden’s desk as the House passed it in a 224-201 vote earlier this week.
Passage of the stopgap follows the announcement from party negotiators that they had reached “reached a bipartisan, bicameral framework that should allow us to finish an omnibus appropriations bill that can pass the House and Senate and be signed into law by the president.” …
[Some senators] expressed optimism that Congress would pass a year-long budget before the deadline.
