As expected, the Senate took up and passed last night its version of the first three-bill “minibus” package by a vote of 86 to 5. The vehicle contains the FY2019 Energy and Water, Military Construction-VA, and Legislative Branch spending bills.  With the House having passed the same set of bills earlier this summer, the bills now will proceed to conference.

The Defense spending bill is expected to make its way through the Senate committee process this week, with subcommittee action expected this morning and full committee consideration scheduled for Thursday.  Meanwhile, the House committee-approved Defense bill is expected on the House floor later week.
