S. 3414: Major Medical Facility Authorization Act of 2020

Call or Write Congress

A bill to authorize major medical facility projects for the Department of Veterans Affairs for fiscal year 2020, 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
