Three Proposed Dept Budgets Move Forward in Senate

Capitol_BuildingLegislation on budget allocations for the Departments of Commerce, Justice and Homeland Security will be subject to full review of the Senate Appropriations Committee this week, The Hill newspaper reported Tuesday.

Erik Wasson writes a subcommittee unanimously approved the Commerce, Justice, Science Bill while the Homeland Security Bill passed under a 9-2 vote.

Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) told The Hill the House and Senate versions of the CJS bill have a $91 billion discrepancy between them.

Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) supports a version of the CJS bill that increases funding for NASA but intends to reject the bill in full committee vote, according to The Hill.

Wasson reports Sen. Mary Landrieu (R-La.) authored the homeland security bill and the difference between both chambers’ versions of that bill is at around $200 million.
