Recent House Votes Omnibus Appropriations – passage – Vote Passed (359-67, 7 Not Voting)

On Wednesday, the House voted to pass roughly $1.1 trillion in discretionary spending for the remainder of fiscal 2014. The vote bundled together 12 separate bills to fund federal departments and agencies. More than half of the funds will go to the Department of Defense, the war in Afghanistan, and other counterterrorism operations. With the vote, the House stuck to the deal over top-line discretionary spending struck between House and Senate appropriators in December.
