Alexander Bolton of The Hill newspaper calls Senate Majority Leader Reid's omnibus package as "only way to get these appropriations bills passed."
Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) expressed frustration with the "dysfunctional" state of Congress today, blaming lawmakers who he said shouldn't be legislating in the first place.
Despite the successful passage last week of a small group of annual spending bills covering several federal agencies' 2012 budgets, Congress will likely fold the remaining bills into a single omnibus.
A government shutdown was averted Thursday when Congress approved a compromise spending bill. The bill funds the departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Transportation, HUD, Justice, and some smaller agencies through the end of the fiscal year. The rest of the government will operate on another short-term continuing resolution, which will expire Dec. 16.
The House and the Senate voted to approve appropriations bills for Agriculture; Commmerce, Justice and Science agencies; and the Departments of Transportation and Housing and Urban Development. Taken together this is the "minibus."
The conference committee is the first step in reconciling the House version of the appropriations bill with the Senate's.
