Lawmakers unveil $1.1 trillion spending bill

General view of the U.S. Capitol dome in the pre-dawn darkness in WashingtonBy David Lawder WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Negotiators in the U.S. Congress on Monday unveiled a $1.1 trillion spending bill that aims to prevent another government shutdown while boosting funding levels slightly for military and domestic programs – but not for “Obamacare” health reforms. With a deadline looming at midnight Wednesday for new spending authority, lawmakers will still need a three-day stop-gap funding extension to ensure enough time for passage of the spending bill this week. The measure eases across-the-board spending cuts by providing an extra $45 billion for military and domestic discretionary programs for fiscal 2014, to a total of $1.012 trillion. The shutdown was prompted largely by disputes over funding for “Obamacare” health insurance reforms.
