House and Senate appropriators unveiled a $1.012 trillion bipartisan omnibus spending bill for fiscal year 2014 late Monday that would provide funds for transportation and many other programs but not high speed rail.

The bill, which essentially combines 12 appropriations measures, would fund the operation of the federal government through Sept. 30 and is expected to be approved by Congress this week. Lawmakers, determined to avoid another shutdown, are expected to pass a three-day continuing resolution — the current one expires Wednesday — to buy time until the omnibus bill can be enacted.
