Leaders in the United States Senate have announced a bipartisan budget bill that would fund the government for the next two years if passed. The announcement came late Wednesday morning. Some of the highlights of the bill include more funding for the military and for fighting the opioid crisis.
U.S. Congressman Rodney Davis (R-Taylorville) says our troops have suffered greatly from past funding cuts.
Davis says it looks like billions of dollars will be invested across the country to fight the ongoing opioid crisis as well.
Davis says he has not read through the full bill yet, but that he hopes many of the House’s budget priorities were included in this budget agreement.
