House Passes First “Minibus”

After completing its debate earlier today, the House passed the first of its “minibus” packages containing three of the 12 FY2019 appropriations bills, the Energy and Water Development, Military Construction-Veterans Affairs, and Legislative Branch bills.  The goal of the House leadership is to bundle different spending bills into “minibus” measures and move several bills at once rather than trying to pass them individually.

Although the Senate Appropriations Committee has cleared a number of spending bills, none have yet reached the floor for consideration.
