(Worthy News) - Congressional negotiators early Thursday released details of the massive spending deal — giving lawmakers less than 24 hours to read it before they’re expected to vote on it.
The bill runs to 1,159 pages, with another 609-page report containing additional instructions to the departments and agencies funded by the deal.
The Senate is expected to vote on the package in the afternoon, with the House to follow later Thursday night. If the Senate voted at 4 p.m., any senator who wanted to be aware of what he or she was voting on would have to digest two pages a minute, with no breaks, up until the vote in order to get through the bill and report.
