Historical Database – Leg Branch:
Open a document below, press the Ctrl + F buttons, and enter relevant terms to locate the
bill or report provisions you need; or contact us and we’ll be happy to do the research for you.
Omnibus: all (or most) regular appropriations bills packaged together.
Minibus: several regular appropriations bills packaged together.
CR: continues agency funding at a particular level–often the previous year–without detailed appropriations.
Cromnibus: a CR for some agencies and detailed appropriations for others.
Note on Joint Statements: In many cases, (House-Senate) joint explanatory statements on omnibus appropriations bills are printed only in the Congressional Record–which is impossible to read on mobile devices. In those cases, we have uploaded House Rules Committee PDFs.
Please note: When you click on the links below, the bill your browser opens may not be what you expect, because the appropriations language you need has been included by the Committee in a bill with an unrelated title. For example, LHHS appropriations might be included in a bill titled Mil-Con-VA. Rest assured, you have opened the correct document; simply proceed to the relevant “title” or “division” of the bill.
