Current Status of Spending Bills

The Heritage Foundation has a useful chart out today detailing the current status of apprpriations bills:

Despite thefact that the topline spending figure is already locked in at $1.043 trillion, there is still wiggle room for Democrats to add more spending to their priorities.  How will they accomplish this?  By cutting defense spending, of course.  They plan to cut military spending by $17 billion, while adding more spending to health, labor, and food programs.  Republicans must fight for the House-passed bill during conference committee next week.
