H.R. 1370: Department of Homeland Security Blue Campaign Authorization Act of 2017

This was a vote to pass H.R. 1370 in the House.

This bill was the vehicle for passage of legislation to avert a government shutdown. The final legislation included

  • the Further Additional Continuing Appropriations Act, 2018, which funds the government through January 19, 2018
  • funding for a missile defense system
  • funding the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) through March 2018 and other health-related programs
  • funding for the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014

It also temporarily repealed rules that would have made automatic cuts in mandatory spending due to the deficit incurred by the recent tax bill.

This bill was originally a bill "to amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to require the Secretary of Homeland Security to issue Department of Homeland Security-wide guidance and develop training programs as part of the Department of Homeland Security Blue Campaign, and for other purposes" but became the vehicle for passage of the spending provisions when its text was replaced in whole in late December.
