No Precedent in Modern History for Outgoing House Majority Passing Omnibus Appropriations Bill in Lame-Duck Session

The precedent is clear. In modern American history, no Congress has passed an omnibus appropriations bill during a lame-duck session following a shift in power in the House. To do so this year would be a violation of congressional precedent and a finger in the eye to the millions of Americans who voted for new leadership in the House.

In a day and age where the integrity of our institutions is continually under scrutiny, honoring the will of the people and the historical precedent of Congress should be a priority.

The 117th Congress should pass a short-term congressional resolution that provides stop-gap funding until early 2023, then allow the 118th Congress to do the job it was sent to Washington to do.

That pretty much sums up their attitude from the "get go".
