South Dakota Congresswoman Kristi Noem joined members of the House to pass a bipartisan comprehensive funding bill that will fully fund the government through Fiscal Year 2014.

She said there are sections important to the state…

 

Noem says the omnibus appropriations bill, reduces discretionary spending by more than $21 billion from Fiscal Year 2013 sequestration levels and stays well below the cap established through the Budget Control Act…

 

Noem says there are still some spending holes that will need to be filled…

 

The Senate is expected to take the bill up later this week.
