Senate Passes Minibus, Next (and Last) Stop — White House

Senate Passes Minibus, Next (and Last) Stop — White House

The Senate just passed the minibus appropriations bill (H.R. 2112), sending it on its way to the White House for signature.

The bill funds NASA, NOAA, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), and the FAA’s Office of Commercial Space Transportation among many other agencies.

The vote was 70-30.

The bill also includes a new Continuing Resolution to fund the rest of the government through December 16.

This is good news for the agencies included in the minibus. Whether or not they like what Congress did, they at least know how much money they have to work with in FY2012.
