H.R. 195: Continuing appropriations through February 16, 2018
Concurring in the Senate Amendment in the House

This was a vote to make H.R. 195 the vehicle for passage for short-term continuing appropriations through Feb. 16, 2018, averting a government shutdown when a previous short-term funding bill expires at the end of Jan. 19, 2018. With this vote, the House replaced the previous text of H.R. 195 in whole with the government funding provisions, sending the bill to the Senate. The bill would:

  • extend funding for government programs at levels similar to existing funding through February 16, 2018. Continuing appropriations are stop-gap measures when full fiscal-year appropriations and authorizations funding bills are not enacted.
  • extend the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for six years
  • extend the existing suspensions of the Affordable Care Act's medical device excise tax through 2019 and the tax on high cost employer-sponsored health coverage through 2021

(H.R. 195 had previously been, before its text was replaced, a bill to save $1 million annually by ending the printed publication of the Federal Register, and, after its text was replaced once before, the failed vehicle for passage of Kevin and Avonte's Law of 2017, an extension of an alert program for missing Alzheimer’s disease patients.)

This vote was related to a bill introduced by Rep. Steve Russell [R-OK5] on January 3, 2017, H.R. 195: Extension of Continuing Appropriations Act, 2018; HEALTHY KIDS Act; Federal Register Printing Savings Act of 2017.
