S. 1119: Federal Maritime Commission Authorization Act of 2017

A bill to authorize appropriations for fiscal years 2018 and 2019 for the Federal Maritime Commission, and for other purposes.

The bill’s titles are written by its sponsor.

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.

Sponsor. Senior Senator for Nebraska. Republican.
