Budget Developments

David Rogers reported yesterday at Politico that, “Senate Democrats mapped out plans Thursday to expand on a House-passed stopgap spending bill — adding full-year budgets for four more Cabinet departments as well as major science and space agencies.

“Justice, Homeland Security, Agriculture, Commerce, NASA and the National Science Foundation should benefit most. And Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski said she has begun drafting new legislative language to expand on the ability of other departments to move money between accounts to cope with cuts ordered last week.”
