Washington, D.C- After weeks of negotiations Congressional leaders reached a bipartisan $1.7 trillion deal to fund the government. The package includes funding for the entirety of federal operations and includes additional aid for Ukraine, emergency disaster assistance and authorization for more funding for both the CHIPS & Science Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. “NAWBO is pleased to see that Congressional leadership reached a bipartisan deal to fund the government through next year, providing a clean slate for when the new Congress is sworn in on January 3rd” NAWBO Chair-elect Lisa Coppola said of the package.
The Omnibus package will fund the government until September 30, 2023. NAWBO applauds Congressional leaders for their efforts to reach a deal, and looks forward to working with, and welcoming the 118th Congress in the new year.
