H.R. 3352: Department of State Authorization Act of 2019

Call or Write Congress

To provide for certain authorities of the Department of State, 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 and status

Eliot Engel

Sponsor. Representative for New York's 16th congressional district. Democrat.
