Motion to Proceed on H.R. 195: Continuing appropriations through February 16, 2018

This was the first procedural vote to pass H.R. 195, the vehicle for passage for short-term continuing appropriations through Feb. 16, 2018, in the Senate, averting a government shutdown when a previous short-term funding bill expires at the end of Jan. 19, 2018.

(H.R. 195 has had its text replaced in whole twice. Most recently, H.R. 195 was Kevin and Avonte's Law of 2017, an extension of an alert program for missing Alzheimer’s disease patients. Before that it was a bill to save $1 million annually by ending the printed publication of the Federal Register. On Jan. 18, 2018, the House replaced the text in whole with the continuing appropriations provisions.)

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.
