WASHINGTON — Bipartisan congressional negotiators have agreed to a sweeping $1.16 trillion omnibus spending bill for 2017, with $593 billion for the military. The deal, if passed, would fund the government through Sept. 30.
After funding the government at 2016 levels for more than half the fiscal year, Congress is expected to vote on a 2017 appropriations omnibus this week. The deal does not contain the border wall funding sought by President Donald Trump and opposed by Democrats, but it does contain $1.5 billion in border security funding.
