Congress Puts Out 4,155-Page, $1.7 Trillion Funding Bill; Here’s What’s In It

  • Congress is set to vote on a 4,155-page, $1.7 trillion government funding bill within days of its release this week.
  • The omnibus funding package, made up of the 12 annual appropriations bills, will fund the government and its various agencies through the remainder of fiscal 2023, which ends in late September.
  • Its expected passage in the days ahead will cap off months of stalemates in haggling over issues like levels of growth for defense and nondefense spending and decades-old riders.
