House passes Omnibus funding bill

The House passed a massive $1.3 trillion spending bill that funds the federal government through Sept. 30. The Senate must act by midnight Friday to avoid a shutdown. 9th District Congressman Doug Collins issued the following statement in response to today’s passage of the funding bill in the House:

Supporting our military means funding troops and the resources they need to protect American lives, and this bill delivers pay raises to service members while strengthening our military’s capabilities and battle readiness. Today’s vote would also dedicate $1.6 billion over the next six months to physical barriers along America’s southern border and further fund immigration enforcement efforts. It upholds pro-life policies and invests in the country’s infrastructure, helping make a spectrum of the President’s priorities reality for this year.

What about DACA?


“Giant building photos: The bill blocks the Capitol architect from using federal funds to create and hang a giant photo or drawing of any Capitol Hill building outside of that building when it’s being renovated. (This was done when the Supreme Court building was renovated.) Pg. 1,077.”



That sounds like a security measure.
