Monday, the House Appropriations Committee unveiled the Continuing Resolution that, if passed, will replace the existing CR slated to expire on March 27.
The CR would also provide roughly $2 billion above the current level for embassy security, which supports increased security needs identified after the attack on the U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya. The resolution also provides funding intended for the Bureau of Prisons.
