H.R. 3074 (110th): Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2008

The federal budget process occurs in two stages: appropriations and authorizations. This is an appropriations bill, which sets overall spending limits by agency or program. (Authorizations direct how federal funds should or should not be used.) Appropriations are typically made for single fiscal years (October 1 through September 30 of the next year).
