Awaiting Floor Time, House Appropriations Bill in Legislative Limbo
June 26, 2013
The House Appropriations Committee has yet to secure floor time for a Pentagon spending bill from lower chamber leaders, a senior House aide says.
The committee approved its version of the 2014 defense appropriations bill on June 12, and congressional sources indicated then the legislation would hit the House floor the week of June 17. But House leaders opted instead to move other legislation.
