Washington D.C, Dec 17, 2011: On December 15, 2011, under the leadership of the House Committee on Rules, the U.S House of Representatives reached the bipartisan agreement to pass H.R.2055. On Saturday December 17, 2011, the U.S. Senate again came to the bipartisan agreement and passed the bill with YEAs 67 - NAYs 32 - Not Voting 1.

H.R. 2055 is a bill making appropriations for military construction, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and related agencies for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2012, and for other purposes.

The measure is the vehicle for making appropriations for most federal government operations for the remainder of FY2012 and to prevent government shutdown.

Voice of Vietnamese Americans congratulates this achievement with much efforts and supports from both parties, and from President Obama.

May the Bipartisanship illustrated in this bill continues to lead the United States through this challenging time of the country.

May God Bless America.
