From One Bill to the Next

After several long days of debate, the House is expected to vote on passing the first four-bill spending package for FY2020 later today.  The chamber concluded its debate on the last amendments made in order for the bill late last night/early this morning and will vote on them and on final passage later today.  The measure,  H.R. 2740, combines the Labor-HHS-Education, Defense, State-Foreign Operations, and Energy and Water bills for FY2020.

Currently, the House is scheduled to follow up its work on H.R. 2740 with floor action on H.R. 3055, a vehicle that combines five separate spending bills:  Commerce-Justice-Science; Agriculture; Interior; Military Construction-Veterans Affairs; and Transportation-House and Urban Development.
