H.J.Res. 99: Making further continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2017, and for other purposes.

This was a vote to agree to H.J.Res. 99 in the House.

This bill extended federal government funding through May 5, 2017. It was enacted on the day funding was to end. The federal government is currently funded through "continuing appropriations" legislation that maintains government spending levels as they were for arbitrary periods of time. Traditionally, though not recently, the federal government was funded by major funding legislation for a whole fiscal year at a time. If an appropriations law is not enacted before the last one lapses, non-critical federal government functions shut down.
