Two Year Federal Budget Deal?

USCapitol3NPR and other news organizations are reporting a bipartisan budget agreement has been made between Senator Mitch McConnell and Senator Chuck Schumer. If passed, the deal would suspend planned cuts to both military and domestic spending. This bill would also increase the debt ceiling, which needs to happen in the next month.

Not included in the bill, however, is a decision on DACA recipients. Without policy aiding the Dreamers, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is opposing the bill. Meanwhile, at least one House Republican is also in opposition.

Action Steps: Call your legislators to talk about the budget at 202-224-3121. Here's a sample script: "My name is ___, and I live in ___'s district. I'm calling to show my support/disapproval of the proposed 2 year budget." Then share one or two sentences about the programs you care about and if you agree with the proposed funding.
