Rogers: Final Appropriations Package Will Move Forward
House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers has announced that the final fiscal year 2012 Appropriations legislation will move forward with the approval of House and Senate conferees.
“The House and Senate have reached a final agreement to move forward on the final fiscal year 2012 Appropriations legislation. I am hopeful that the House and Senate can pass this bill tomorrow to prevent a government shutdown, fund critical programs and services for the American people, and cut spending to help put the nation’s finances on a more sustainable path. In spite of many unnecessary obstacles, it is good to see that responsible leadership and good governance can triumph,” Chairman Rogers said.
The conference report is expected to be filed in the House later this evening.
