House, Senate reach $1 trillion spending agreement to fund U.S. government
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Congressional leaders say they have reached an agreement on a $1 trillion spending bill that would fund the U.S. government through the end of the 2014 budget year.
In a joint statement, the Republican and Democratic leaders of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees said the bill “keeps the government open and eliminates the uncertainty and economic instability of stop-gap governing.”
They stressed that not everyone would like everything about the bill but added that a critical bill “cannot reflect the wants of only one party.”
