House Continues Consideration of HR 3354 – FY 2018 Spending

This week the House will continue with its consideration of HR 3354, the FY 2018 spending bill. Friday the House continued their work on the bill under a second structured rule that added an additional 225 amendments to be considered during the floor debate.

None of the new amendments look to be of specific interest to readers of this blog. The three amendments that I mentioned last week passed by voice votes last week. Two of those (#21 and #37) were considered on their own and #67 was considered as part of en block amendment #3.

With the continuing resolution in place extending current spending until December 8th, this bill, if it is considered in the Senate, will certainly be amended. As a result, a conference committee will almost certainly be required to craft a final version of the bill. The CR provides some time for that process to work out the details.
