While the House and Senate are left to hash out line items for shared expenses on Capitol Hill, each chamber defers to the other on its own budget for Membersí allowances and personnel salaries.
This was the case for this bill, too. The House designated $1.2 billion for its own expenses, and the Senate allocated $863 million. Those allotments are unchanged in the fiscal 2012 omnibus.
Correction: 12/15 12:08 p.m.
An earlier version of this story was corrected to reflect the Senate's original allocation for the GPO.
