During the next few weeks, key members of Congress and the Senate will be working on a series of appropriations bills for the 2009 fiscal year. Currently, the government is operating under a continuing resolution, commensurate with their current spending levels. Congressional leadership would like to increase spending and rework some of their priorities for the rest of 2009.
