Amid Spending Bill Deadlock, House Appropriator Seeks Senate Seat


Kingston. (Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call File Photo)

Congressional appropriators are struggling with the fiscal 2015 spending bills, and both the House and Senate versions of the Labor-HHS-Education bill have not yet to emerged from the committee level. The House subcommittee for the bill is led by Georgia Republican Jack Kingston, who is also vying for his party’s nomination in a July 22 primary runoff election for a Senate seat.

Roll Call reported last month that internal polls put Kingston slightly ahead in the race, which is for the seat being vacated by Republican Saxby Chambliss.

It’s hardly the first time an Appropriations “cardinal” has found himself with a bill to move and a primary to win. Kingston’s predecessor at helm of the subcommittee, Republican Denny Rehberg, faced a similar problem and he failed in his 2012 attempt to unseat Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont.

The Labor-HHS-Education spending bill is always contentious and in recent years has been stymied by partisan differences over extending or adding funding for the implementation of the 2010 health care overhaul.

CQ Roll Call reports that health agency and program funding is likely headed toward a stopgap continuing resolution, extending current funding levels until at least November.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However think of if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could definitely be one of the best in its field. Very good blog!

    There are many other ways to use social media, but the main thing to remember is to connect all of the various pages you will be creating, and to have different sorts of information on each page. This means that enterprises invested heavily through the internet will have to face the constant challenge of investing in more man power, technology etc to be able to act according to the slew of continuous information made available to them. Using digital marketing is also ideal if you currently do not have a following and are just breaking into the business industry, as it is an ideal platform for discovering those who are interested in your products and the services you have to offer.
