H.R. 2 (111th): Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009

Jan 29, 2009 at 8:57 p.m. ET. On Passage of the Bill in the Senate.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 2 (111th) in the Senate. The federal budget process occurs in two stages: appropriations, which set overall spending limits by agency or program, and authorizations, which direct how federal funds should (or should not) be used. Appropriation and authorization provisions are typically made for single fiscal years. A reauthorization bill like this one renews the authorizations of an expiring law.
