With the proposed omnibus spending bill, U.S. Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski has provided the leadership that demonstrates how Congress is supposed to work ("Bill keeps government open, gives millions to Md.," Jan. 14).
The bill provides for restrained government spending but it provides investment in critical areas such as early childhood education, infrastructure and medical research, and it has bipartisan Congressional and White House support. Maryland and the entire nation will benefit from Senator Mikulski's ability to get things done as the chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
