We need to change the budget process so the Senate can’t delay going through the “Nobody Can Read” Omnibus at the last minute.


On Wednesday’s show of “Hannity” on Fox News Channel, House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) said the appropriations process needed to change so that the bills of government funding are passed by the House before the summer and the Senate can’t “Wait until Christmas Eve, put something together in this big omnibus bill where they have everything under the sun that no one can read. “

Scalise said, “One of the things we’ve talked about is actually changing the way the whole ownership process works. And as Majority Leader, I’ve already set a timeline, working with Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX), who will be Chair of the Appropriations Committee, so that we can actually get all the bills through. by the House before the summer, bring them to the Senate. But we need to set an early marker that the Senate needs to do its job and not wait until the midnight hour. It’s become a problem that’s been going on for years now, where the Senate waits until September 30, they just do CR after CR, short-term funding bills because they know they can wait until ‘on Christmas Eve, putting something together in this big omnibus bill where they have everything under the sun that no one can read. We need to change this way of doing business and we need to make this milestone early. »
