H.R. 965 (111th): Chesapeake Bay Gateways and Watertrails Network Continuing Authorization Act

Sep 10, 2009 at 12:20 p.m. ET. On Passage of the Bill in the House.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 965 (111th) in the House. 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.
