H.R. 1550 (106th): Fire Administration Authorization Act of 2000

To authorize appropriations for the United States Fire Administration for fiscal years 2000 and 2001, and for other purposes.

The federal budget process occurs in two stages: appropriations and authorizations. This is an authorization bill, which directs how federal funds should or should not be used. (It does not set overall spending limits, however, which are the subject of appropriations bills.) Authorizations are typically made for single fiscal years (October 1 through September 30 of the next year) but are often renewed in subsequent law.
