Leahy made the announcement Tuesday night, according to The hill.
He went on to say, “The pain of inflation is real, and it’s being felt across the federal government and across American families right now. We can’t delay our work any longer, and a rolling two-month resolution brings no relief.” “
House Appropriations Committee Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) also weighed in, sharing, “We have a framework that provides a path forward to enact a bus next week.”
DeLauro also indicated that the committees will work “around the clock” to finalize the spending bills.

Prior to this deal, a major issue between Democrats and Republicans was the disparity between defense and domestic spending. None of the legislators who spoke last night indicated what resolution was reached regarding this matter.
