FY 2019 Conference Action on Homeland Security Appropriations:
Fiscal Year 2019 began Monday, 10/1/18, with agencies funded by 7 of the 12 regular appropriations bills funded by a continuing resolution (CR) through Dec. 7 — now extended through Dec. 21 by HJRes 143 passed by Congress on 12/6 and signed by the President on 12/7. The 7 bills temporarily funded by CR are: Agriculture-Rural Dev-FDA, Commerce-Justice-Science, Financial Services-General Govt, Homeland Security, Interior-Environment, State-Foreign Operations, and Transportation-HUD. (The CR also extends the National Flood Insurance Program through 12/21 and has the effect of extending through 12/21 several additional authorities and programs including the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 and the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant.) Agencies funded by the 7 bills face a shutdown at midnight Dec. 21 without completion of the bills or enactment of a further CR.

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.
