House Passes H Res 1061 – First Minibus for FY 2024 Spending

This afternoon, the House took up H Res 1061, describes as a resolution “Providing for the concurrence by the House in the Senate amendment to HR 4366, with an amendment.", making this the vehicle for the first FY 2024 minibus that I described on Monday. While we will not know for sure until the language for H Res 1061 is published but this should be the language released by the House Appropriations Committee on Sunday.

After just a bit more than the scheduled 40-minutes of debate a recorded vote was demanded. The vote was subsequently held and the bill passed by a bipartisan vote of 339 to 85; the Republican vote was 132 to 83.

While the vote was on H Res 1061, the bill that will go to the President (if the new language is accepted in the Senate) will be HR 4366. That bill started out in the House as the Military Construction spending bill. On November 1st the Senate passed the bill after adding Senate language  for the ARD spending (S 2131) and THUD spending ( 2437) bills. The revised bill provides compromise language for those three spending bills and adds language for CJS, EWR, and IER spending bills. The remaining six spending bills are due to be similarly considered before March 22nd.
