Lawmakers introduce compromise 'minibus' spending bill
from The Hill
House and Senate appropriators released a compromise spending "minibus" that combines three of the 12 annual appropriations bills and a temporary spending bill to fund the rest of the government through Dec. 16. The bill is the first conferenced spending bill to go through Congress since 2009. All funding in 2011 was determined through catch-all continuing resolutions. For fiscal 2012, which began Oct. 1, Congress has yet to pass any of the regular bills.
