H.R. 2029: Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016

Dec 17, 2015 at 1 p.m. ET. On Concurring in Senate Amdt with Amdt Specified in Section 3(b) of H.Res. 566 in the House.

This vote was on the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015. The vote was to replace the text of H.R. 2029, as passed by the Senate on an unrelated topic, with the text of this new proposal regarding taxes.

A second vote added the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016, also known as the omnibus spending bill, into H.R. 2029 as well.

The bill, which had already been passed by the Senate (but now in a different form), will then go back to the Senate for another vote.

H.R. 2029 has become the vehicle for passage for these two new proposals. The bill was previously the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016, but see the second vote, linked above, for further details about the original bill.

"Section 3(b) of H.Res. 566", mentioned in the vote title, means the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015, in House Rules Committee Print 114-40, which we've linked to above.

This vote was related to a bill introduced by Rep. Charles Dent [R-PA15, 2005-2018] on April 24, 2015, H.R. 2029 (114th): Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016.
