The 1,582-page Omnibus spending bill was given very little time to be read but increased spending $45 billion over Budget Control Act levels. Last minute bills are a typical Washington maneuver to ram through large spending bills with very little scrutiny. This bill passed the House 359 – 67 on Jan. 15, 2014 and was signed by the president on Jan. 17. 2014.
