H.R. 719: TSA Office of Inspection Accountability Act of 2015

This was a vote to pass H.R. 719 in the House. The federal budget process occurs in two stages: appropriations and authorizations. This is an appropriations bill, which sets overall spending limits by agency or program. (Authorizations direct how federal funds should or should not be used.) Appropriations are typically made for single fiscal years (October 1 through September 30 of the next year). 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.

This bill continued funding of the federal government through December 11, 2015. It also contains provisions for reforms in the Transportation Security Administration.
