"Appropriations: Senate Panel OKs Interior-EPA Bill Without New Riders"

"Senate appropriators quickly advanced by voice vote this morning a $35.9 billion fiscal 2019 spending bill for EPA, the Interior Department and related agencies, with bipartisan consensus and without any new "poison pill riders."

That total approved in subcommittee includes $32.6 billion in discretionary funding.

"We've assembled a package that both sides can support in committee, with the ultimate goal of taking the bill to the Senate floor," said Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee Chairwoman Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska). "This has not happened since fiscal 2010.""
