HR 8294 Passed in House – FY 2023 Minibus Spending Bill

Yesterday, the House completed consideration of HR 8294, the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, Agriculture, Rural Development, Energy and Water Development, Financial Services and General Government, Interior, Environment, Military Construction, and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act, 2023. This minibus spending bill includes six spending bills (HR 8294-THUD, HR 8239-ARD, HR 8255-EWR, HR 8254-FSGG, HR 8262-IER, and HR 8238-MC&VA). The bill passed on a party line vote of 220 to 207.

A large number of the 190 proposed amendments were adopted, mostly in en bloc votes. There were no cybersecurity, chemical transportation or UAS amendments proposed.

The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration. With no spending bills published by the Senate Appropriations Committee, there are no substitute languages currently available to begin Senate consideration. With the party-line vote, the Senate is unlikely to take up the House language for consideration. This bill is unlikely to be considered in the Senate.
