U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., voted in favor of the long-term budget agreement and Continuing Resolution to fund the government through March 23, 2018.
The bill, which Senator Shelby supported, was passed with bipartisan support by a vote of 71-28 in the U.S. Senate.
“The Senate has approved a two-year budget agreement, which ensures that the men and women of our armed forces will have the resources needed to keep our country safe,” Shelby said. “Additionally the package provides critical funding to help our nation’s veterans receive the care they deserve while increasing resources for infrastructure improvements and disaster relief.”
