Omnibus Vote Likely Pushed Back in House

Omnibus Vote Likely Pushed Back in House

The House likely won’t take up the fiscal 2018 omnibus spending bill this week, as there are a number of spending and policy issues that still must be resolved before congressional leaders can file the measure. With the current continuing resolution expiring March 23, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) had hoped lawmakers could vote on the $1.3 billion bill by Friday. “I know there are a few things they still have to close out, so if you can’t get it done and posted by tomorrow night, we won’t be able to do it this week,” McCarthy said Tuesday. “We’ll have to do it next week,” he said, reported CQ.
