- Excerpt from The Administration:

Congress passed and the President signed an omnibus agreement for FY 2014. The compromise bill provides $1.12 trillion in discretionary spending for 2014, approximately halfway between the dueling budgets approved by the Senate ($1.58 trillion) and the House ($967 billion). Of particular note, the bill funds the SEC at $1.35 billion ($324 million below the amount requested) and the CFTC at $215 million ($100 million below the amount requested).
