The House of Representatives Tuesday voted largely along party-line vote of 114-84 to send the Senate a $31.52 billion spending plan, despite not having an articulated, supportable plan for funding it.

 

"This is a responsible, sustainable budget for FY 2017-2018," said House Appropriations Majority Chairman Stan Saylor (R-York). "It's a departure from past years and a good first step in the direction of reinventing government."
