Noem Voted For Budget Deal

The US House approved a compromise two year spending deal last week, and then adjourned for the year. The deal would actually increase spending in 2014 and 2015, and replace the sequester with more targeted cuts.

South Dakota Congresswoman Kristi Noem voted for the agreement…

The bill will now be debated in the Senate this week before they depart for the holidays.
