New Government Omnibus Bill

National VFW - 5/12/2017

A bipartisan congressional committee produced an omnibus spending package earlier this week to fund the federal government through the end of the current fiscal year, Sept. 30. The Pentagon’s portion of the trillion-dollar bill totals $598.5 billion, which is almost $20 billion more than originally recommended. Along with more ships, aircraft, missiles and air defense weapons is the 2.1 percent military pay raise, an increase in troop numbers, and additional funding for operations, maintenance, research and development. Also of note is the agreement adds $331 million to the Transportation Security Administration to hire more officers and canine teams; and no border wall, but $1.5 billion was added to repair existing border fencing and to purchase new surveillance technology, such as drones and sensors.
