USA budget deal to boost military, infrastructure spending

USA budget deal to boost military, infrastructure spending

The Senate has agreed to a two-year deal that raises both defense and domestic discretionary spending well above the sequester levels in the Budget Control Act.

A US budget deal announced on Wednesday in the Senate would increase military and non-defense spending over two years, boost infrastructure investments and extend a popular children's health insurance program, a congressional source familiar with the agreement said.

CHIP, which provides health coverage to 9 million kids, recently had its funding extended for six years as part of an agreement to temporarily keep the government open last month. Federal funding for community health centers, which serve more than 27 million people, expired September 30. Domestic spending is up, but a lot of that is disaster funding that Congress nearly certainly would have eventually approved anyway. Members have never been appointed to the IPAB, according to Kaiser Health News.
