Dec. 11 – President Trump threatens government shutdown next Friday, 12/21,  over border wall funding:  On Tuesday, in a meeting (video of the meeting) with Democratic Leaders Pelosi and Schumer, President Trump reiterated his demand for $5 billion in US-Mexico border wall funding and said “I am proud to shut down the government for border security.” Senate GOP and Democratic negotiators have agreed to $1.6 billion for border security for FY’19.  Agencies funded by the 7 unfinished appropriations billsAgriculture-Rural-FDA, Commerce-Justice-Science, Homeland Security, Financial Services-General GovtInterior-Environment, State, and Transportation-HUD — will shut down Friday Dec. 21 at midnight absent a deal to complete the bills or enactment of another continuing resolution (CR).

Dec 10:  House Democratic Steering & Policy Committee has formally nominated Nita Lowey (D-NY) to serve as Chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee in the 116th Congress.

Dec. 7: President signed a 2-week CR through Fri. 12/21 extending temporary funding for agencies funded by the 7 unfinished appropriations bills — Ag, CJS, HSec, FSGG, Interior, State, and THUD. | Text of H.J.Res. 143 – the 2-week CR |  The resolution also extends the National Flood Insurance Program through 12/21; and has the effect of extending through 12/21 several additional authorities and programs that were extended in the existing CR, including the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 and the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant.

Oct 3: Senate passed 93-6 the motion to concur in the House amendment to HR 302, that provides $1.68 billion in Hurricane Florence disaster recovery aid through the CDBG (Community Development Block Grants) disaster recovery program to rebuild housing, infrastructure, and assist local businesses.  On 10/1, the Senate voted 90-7 to invoke cloture on the motion to concur.  On 9/26, the House voted 398-23 to add the disaster funding. | R-Stmt | D-Stmt

Overview (updated 12/11/18):
Fiscal Year 2019 began Monday, October 1, with 5 of the 12 regular appropriations bills enacted: 
(1) Defense, (2) Energy-Water, (3) Labor-HHS-Education, (4) Legislative Branch, (5) Military Construction-Veterans Affairs. 
[See below for links to all bill language, reports, and summaries.]
Seven of the 12 bills are covered by a continuing resolution through Dec. 21: Agriculture-Rural Dev-FDA | Commerce-Justice-Science | Financial Services-General Govt | Homeland Security | Interior-Environment  | State-Foreign Operations | Transportation-HUD. 
[See below for links to the CR and all pending bill and report language.]
Most notable about this year’s appropriations process is the timely and bipartisan manner in which the Senate Appropriations Committee advanced all 12 appropriations bills — belying the familiar refrain that the budget process is broken. A key factor is the Senate’s 60-vote requirement that incentivizes bipartisan negotiation and cooperation.  In the House, however, the majority party can generally advance bills without minority votes and the House appropriations bills advanced largely along party lines.
The Senate Appropriations Committee 
reported all 12 bills — with bipartisan support — and passed 9 bills on the Floor: a 3-bill minibus: EW-Leg-MilCon;  a 4-bill minibus: Int-FSGG-THUD-Ag; and a 2-bill minibus: Defense-LHHS.
The House Appropriations Committee reported all 12 bills — generally along party lines — and 6 bills passed on the Floor: 
Defense, as well as two minibus packages: EW-Leg-MilCon and Int-FSGG
.
Status and Outlook:
[Note on Minibus designations:  Minibus packages were initially numbered by Senate Floor consideration.  The committees are now using the order of conference report consideration, as follows:]
