H.R. 1301: Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2017

This was a vote to pass H.R. 1301 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).

H.R. 1301 reflects the final, bicameral agreement on fiscal year 2017 Department of Defense spending.

If enacted, H.R. 1301 would result in discretionary budget authority of $577.9 billion. The agreement includes savings of $1.155 billion from lower-than-expected fuel costs, $157 million due to favorable economic conditions, and $4.76 billion is savings from rescissions of unused prior-year funding.
