Conferees: 9/6: House and Senate named conferees on HR 6147, the IntEnv–FSGG–THUD–AG (HR 6147, the 3rd minibus): House GOP conferees: Frelinghuysen, Aderholt, Simpson, Calvert, Cole, Diaz-Balart, Graves, David Young, Rutherford.

Senate GOP conferees: Shelby, Collins, Murkowski, Hoeven, Lankford, Hyde-Smith; Senate Dem conferees: Leahy, Reed, Udall, Merkley, Coons.
Status: Negotiations not completed. Agencies funded by the four bills (IntEnv–FSGG–THUD–AG), as well as agencies funded by the C-J-S, H-Sec, and State-FOps bills, are funded through Dec. 21 by a two-week continuing resolution (CR) passed by Congress on 12/6 and signed by the President on 12/7. Text of H.J.Res. 143 – the 2-week CR. Agencies funded by the 7 unfinished bills face a shutdown at midnight Dec. 21 without completion of the bills or enactment of a further CR. While a number of issues remain to be resolved, a key sticking point is border wall funding, with the White House demanding $5 billion for a border wall, while Senate bipartisan negotiators agreed to $1.6 billion for general border security.

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.
