SENATE EXPECTED TO PASS AG APPROPRIATIONS BILL
Jeff Helms
(334) 613-4410
October 16, 2000

The House and Senate continued their slow progress toward adjournment last week with the passage of two more spending bills in the Senate that were sent to the President for his signature. As a result of this activity, Congress is into the second week of the new fiscal year with a new continuing resolution that would keep the federal government funded until October 21. Three of the thirteen appropriations bills have been signed into law, three more have been cleared by both houses and are likely to be signed by the President, four more have conference reports waiting to be cleared, and three bills are still being negotiated.

In particular, the Agriculture Appropriations bill passed the House last week by a wide margin, and the Senate began debate last week as well. The bill is expected to pass by Wednesday of this week, and the White House has said the President will sign the bill.
