Leahy Statement on Bipartisan, Bicameral Framework for the Omnibus

Today, Vice Chairman Shelby, Chair DeLauro, and I reached a bipartisan, bicameral framework that should allow us to finish an omnibus appropriations bill that can pass the House and Senate and be signed into law by the President.  The pain of inflation is real, and it is being felt across the federal government and by American families right now.  We cannot delay our work any further, and a two-month continuing resolution does not provide any relief.  I look forward to continuing to work with my friend, Vice Chairman Shelby, and Chair DeLauro over the next week to finish the job the American people sent us here to do.
