H.R. 2029: Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016

Dec 18, 2015 at 9:49 a.m. ET. On Concurring in Senate Amdt with Amdt Specified in Section 3(a) of H.Res. 566 in the House.

This vote was on the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016, also known as the omnibus spending bill. The bill would fund the federal government for the remainder of fiscal year 2016 (through September 30, 2016). The government had been funded through stop-gap measures over the last several months, with the latest expiring on December 22, 2015

A vote in favor was to add the Consolidated Appropriations Act into H.R. 2029, sending it to the Senate for a vote. The House had previously added the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 to H.R. 2029 in a vote yesterday. The Senate will receive the combined package and must pass it, and then the President must sign it, before the package becomes law.

A vote against would have sent H.R. 2029 to the Senate without the Consolidated Appropriations Act, leaving the federal government at risk of shutting down on December 23, unless another stop-gap measure or spending deal could be enacted.

H.R. 2029 has become the vehicle for passage for the spending and tax proposals. Prior to these votes, the bill was the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016. That text is now Division J of the full bill, although the text may have changed between the bill as it was before and as it appears now in Division J.

"Section 3(a) of H.Res. 566", mentioned in the vote title, refers to the Consolidated Appropriations Act, as printed in House Rules Committee Print 114-39, 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.
