Floor Schedule and Procedure:
Under a Rule (1 bill):
House Amendment to the Senate Amendment to H.R. 3055 — Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2020, and Further Health Extenders Act of 2019 (Rep. Lowey – Appropriations)
This continuing resolution extends funding for all government agencies through December 20. While earlier this year the House successfully passed 10 of 12 full year appropriations bills, due to the Senate’s inaction an extension is needed before resolving final appropriations legislation for FY 2020. The CR includes anomalies fully funding the 2020 Census for the period of the CR and providing a pay raise for troops. Division B includes a number of extensions and technical changes to current law, such as extending expiring health provisions, preventing a $7.6 billion rescission of highway funding, and assisting 9/11 widows and other victims of state sponsored terrorism.
