During the Week

As Congress enters the last month of the year and the end of the 1st session of the 111th Congress, seven of the 12 appropriations bills still have not been sent to the President: Commerce-Justice-Science (which includes NASA, NOAA and NSF); Defense; Financial Services; Labor-HHS-Education; Military Construction-Veterans; State-Foreign Operations; and Transportation-HUD. Strategies are being discussed on how to bundle the bills into one or more “omnibus” or “consolidated” measures. For detailed information on the status of the appropriations bills, visit the Library of Congress’ Thomas website.
