H.R. 636: America’s Small Business Tax Relief Act of 2015

Apr 19, 2016 at 12:12 p.m. ET. On Passage of the Bill in the Senate.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 636 (114th) in the Senate.

It was not the final Senate vote on the bill. See the history of H.R. 636 (114th) for further details.

This bill became the vehicle for passage of the reauthorization of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for fiscal year 2017.

The bill was introduced as the America’s Small Business Tax Relief Act of 2015, and it passed the House in that form on February 13, 2015. The provisions were later incorporated into the government funding bill for fiscal year 2016, which was enacted.

The Senate is now expected to replace the text of this bill, H.R. 636, in its entirety with new text that reauthorizes the FAA. Most federal programs must be reauthorized by Congress before the start of each fiscal year.
