(Worthy News) – The $1.5 trillion omnibus spending bill (HR 2471) was passed by the House on Wednesday and by the Senate on Thursday evening. The bill is now on its way to President Joe Biden’s desk for his signature.
The legislation received bipartisan support in the Senate (68-31) but all the nay votes were from Republicans. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) voted for the bill.
The massive package runs to 2,741 pages, according to The Hill, and contains 4,000 earmarks; approximately $13.6 billion is slated for aid to Ukraine. [ Source: CNS News (Read More…) ]
