    Policy Update -- Week of December 12

    The Big Picture: Just when you thought the government spending debate was over for the year... While it appeared at the end of last week that all parties had agreed to a government spending bill for fiscal year 2012 (which began October 1, 2011), it now appears that deal may be in legislative limbo until a deal is struck on the payroll tax cut extension. Fortunately, an earlier spending bill funded USDA's budget for 2012, but many other federal agencies remain on a continuing resolution until Congress reaches agreement on their appropriations measures. The fun may extend into the weekend as Congress tries to finish its work before Christmas.

    Happening This Week:

    The House and Senate have to work out their differences on the final spending bill for the year and resolve the differences in views on the payroll tax cut extension. The House passed a version of the payroll tax cut extension on December 13, but that version (click here for the text) contains language that forces the Administration to act on the Keystone Pipeline. The bill (HR 3630) has drawn a veto threat.

    Helpful link:

    When the White House issues an official veto threat, here is where they post them: Office of Management and Budget Legislative Information under Statements of Administration Policy (known as SAPs).
