Senate Has Only Passed 3 Out Of 12 Spending Bills As Deadline Looms

via CNBC Television

The Senate has passed only three of the 12 appropriations bills, leaving crucial decisions pending after the holiday recess.

Both the House and Senate have set staggered deadlines for passing appropriations bills, with potential consequences for missing the initial Jan. 19 deadline.

Bipartisanship is emphasized as crucial for progress, with concerns raised about partisan legislation. (Trending: Founding Dixie Chick Member Dies Unexpectedly)

“The only way things get done in divided government is bipartisanship,” Sen. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said.

“The American people won’t support the futile exercise of passing partisan, extremist legislation that has no chance of becoming law, which is what the House is doing right now,” he added.

“Their appropriations bills are loaded with poison pills that they know are not going to be accepted in this chamber or by Democrats in their chamber,” Schumer said.

The Senate has yet to schedule votes on appropriations-related bills, prompting speculation about the possibility of an omnibus bill.

“The only thing you can come to conclusion is his goal is not to pass spending bills but to have an omnibus,” Sen. Rick Scott said.

Various government agencies still need funding, and there is a need to address a border security measure upon the Senate’s return.
