HR 6147 Passed in House

Yesterday the House passed HR 6147, the Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2019 by a strongly partisan vote of 217 to 199 (15 Republicans did note Nay). The floor amendment process took three days, but none of the amendments were of specific interest to readers of this blog.

The Senate is scheduled to start consideration of this bill on Monday after the vote on the Wilke nomination at 5:30 pm EDT. No amendments have been proposed yet in the Senate (that will start on Monday as well), but one of the first will be substitute language taken from S 3073. That bill would also include full funding for the Chemical Safety Board, but at $11 million dollar (FY 2018 level) instead of the $12 million in the House bill.
