Last night, key bipartisan appropriators announced a framework for an omnibus agreement to fully fund the federal government in FY2023.
A full government funding package is in the best interest of the American people and will make sure our children, senior citizens, veterans, small businesses, and defense don’t see vital government services lapse or shrink.
The omnibus package will fund legislation like the PACT Act and the CHIPS and Science Act and contain bipartisan priorities, including more funding for Ukraine and the Electoral Count Act.
A week-long continuing resolution will give appropriators enough time to finalize a full omnibus package, and the Senate should be ready to act quickly to approve one.
The Senate must continue to work together to do right by Americans and send a complete omnibus package to President Biden’s desk ASAP.
