Schumer called the budget "An historic, bipartisan budget deal" that will increase federal investments in NY.
If that fails, the USA government would suffer its second shutdown this year, after a partisan standoff over US immigration policy led to a three-day partial shutdown last month.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer celebrated the new budget agreement but made little mention about what isn't coming with the new two-year agreement - a plan to protect the "Dreamer" immigrants.
Passing 245 to 182, the House bill would fund most of the agencies until 23rd March, while it is the nonstarter of the Senate due to the Democratic opposition. It includes money for the military for a year and community health centers for two years, and shifts Medicare funds.
The bill stalled in the Senate Thursday night when one of the opponents, Senator Rand Paul, refused to allow a speedy vote.
"I am taking this time because I think we have an opportunity now that is nearly matchless we are in a moment when we can all come together to do something really good for the country", Pelosi said. "I'm optimistic that very soon we're going to be able to reach an agreement".Читайте также: Another White House staffer resigns amid domestic abuse allegations
According to congressional sources briefed on the deal, the plan eliminates mandatory spending cuts for two years and increases Pentagon spending by $80 billion and domestic spending by $63 billion for the 2018 fiscal year.
If House conservatives do muster enough votes to block a bill with demands that cannot be sustained in the Senate, then we could be looking at another shutdown, or at a minimum, a show of force that the House Freedom Caucus will then holster for future use. "Nobody wants another except him".
Exact spending would be left to the appropriations committees but included in the funding is $10 billion to invest in infrastructure, $2.9 billion for child care and $3 billion to combat opioid and substance abuse, CNN reported.
January's three-day shutdown came about after Democrats refused to back a spending bill until Congress addressed DACA. However, it does not include funding for border security or deal with protecting young illegal migrants brought to the U.S. as children.
Trump on Wednesday evening praised the agreement in a tweet.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
