Lawmakers eye looming ‘problematic’ funding bills

Summary by Ground News
Congressional leaders are moving quickly to pass their first batch of bills to fund the government for most of 2024 by next Friday, but negotiators are already looking to a March 22 deadline when they say their tougher bills come due. Leaders have said negotiators have come to an agreement on the first tranche of bills coming down the pike next week – but funding chiefs have signaled some trouble ahead as they negotiate the remaining bills. “I feel like there’s some optimism, obviously we’re talking about six right now,” Rep. Steve Womack (R-Ark.), a spending cardinal for the subcommittee that handles funding for the IRS and other offices, said this week. “We got another six, those are the more problematic ones.” Congress approved its fourth stopgap for fiscal year 2024 this week after leaders said they needed more time to pass the first set of government funding bills.
