Legislators reveal a $1.2 trillion funding package in a rushed effort to prevent a government shutdown.

Congress has released a $1.2 trillion spending package that includes six bills and spans over 1,000 pages. The package, which provides funding for various departments and agencies, aims to prevent a government shutdown before the Friday night deadline. Both parties have praised the package, with House Speaker Mike Johnson highlighting conservative policy wins and a focus on national defense. The package also includes a ban on direct U.S. funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, following allegations of agency employees participating in a terror attack. The proposed package also increases funding for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Border Patrol agents. Negotiations for the package were delayed, but leaders announced on Tuesday that they had reached an agreement.
