The debt ceiling deal set new spending limits that must be incorporated in to 13 different spending bills currently before the House Appropriations Committee, but the revisions will wait until after the recess. OMB says the new FY2012 federal spending limit on discretionary programs is $1.04 trillion, or around one-half of 1 percent less than FY2011 levels. Members from both parties have indicated that it is very likely all appropriations bills will be lumped together in one omnibus package before the end of FY 2011 on September 30. A continuing resolution might be needed if a deal on the omnibus package hasn’t been reached in the three weeks between Congress’ return and the start of FY 2012 on October 1.
