Senate to Take Up HR 6157 – FY 2019 DOD Spending

Yesterday the Senate returned from the first part of their abbreviated summer recess as part of their August agenda it was announced that they would take up HR 6157, the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2019. There are at least two nominations that will be dealt with before the consideration process begins on that bill.

The amendment process began yesterday with three amendments being offered. The most important will be SA 3695 (pg S5622-59) being offered by Sen. Shelby (R,AL). This is the substitute language that will be considered instead of the House language on the bill. This language was generally taken from S 3159 (the Senate version of the bill), but also includes language from S 3158, the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2019. Neither bill has been reviewed here as I found little of specific interest to readers of this blog.
