H.R. 4681 (113th): Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015

Dec 10, 2014 at 5:04 p.m. ET. On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Concur in the Senate Amendment in the House.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 4681 (113th) 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. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.
