Lawmakers release $1.3 trillion spending bill, boosting military and domestic spending


Congressional leaders may start voting as early as Thursday on a sweeping $1.3 trillion budget bill that substantially boosts military and domestic spending. The bill also provides roughly $1.6 billion for physical barriers and technology along the U.S.-Mexico border, but not a concrete wall. If passed by Friday night's deadline, the deal would keep the government funded through September and prevent a shutdown.
