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.
