Politico, February 9, 2018:
Congress must still pass another bill with detailed spending levels for each government program for the rest of this fiscal year.
What exactly did Congress pass?
Congress on Friday cleared its biggest fiscal package in nearly a decade, which sets new limits on how much the government can spend in the next two years.
The deal keeps the government operating on another temporary funding patch until March 23. But Congress must still pass another bill, known as an omnibus, with detailed spending levels for each government program for the rest of this fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30.
As part of the deal, Congress finally decided exactly how much to spend on the Pentagon and other government agencies. Military spending will rise to $700 billion for fiscal 2018, roughly 10 percent above current levels. Domestic spending will also get a boost to $591 billion.More from this article here
