FY2014 Omnibus Bill
The final FY2014 Labor-Health and Human Services (HHS)-Education appropriations bill is funded at $156.8 billion. This figure is higher than the FY2013 post-sequester number of $149.6 billion, and closer to the Senate's FY2014 mark of $164.3 billion than the House's earlier $121.8 billion level.
