The House and Senate agreed Monday on a $1.1 trillion dollar government funding measure for 2014. “Although our differences were many and our deadline short, we were able to draft a solid piece of legislation that meets the guidelines of the Ryan-Murray deal, keeps the government open, and eliminates the uncertainty and economic instability of stop-gap governing. Furthermore, our legislation includes a bipartisan fix to repeal last year’s cut to COLAs for disabled military retirees and survivors," according to the lawmakers' Tuesday statement.
