H.Con.Res. 79: Directing the Clerk of the House of Representatives to make corrections in the enrollment of H.R. 719.

This was a vote on a resolution that would have caused H.R. 719 to be amended with provisions to defund Planned Parenthood Federation of America for one year, plus non-substantive technical corrections. H.R. 719 was the must-pass bill that funded the government through December 11, 2015.

Although the resolution passed in the House by this vote, the resolution was not taken up in the Senate.

A resolution like this one that "corrects the enrollment" of another bill is typically used to make non-substantive technical corrections to a bill after it has already been passed by both chambers of Congress in identical form (called "enrollment"). Typically a bill will immediately be sent to the President for signature. With a resolution like this one, when passed by both chambers, the text of the bill can be modified prior to its being sent to the President. It is unusual to use this process to add substantive changes such as the ones here.

This vote was related to a resolution introduced by Rep. Martha Roby [R-AL2] on September 29, 2015, H.Con.Res. 79 (114th): Directing the Clerk of the House of Representatives to make corrections in the enrollment of H.R. 719..
