1 min read

The House on Friday voted 235-179 to pass a package of three appropriations bills for fiscal year 2019, The Hill reported Friday.

The House Appropriations Committee said Friday the “minibus” legislation would authorize $145.4 billion in FY 2019 discretionary funds for military construction and veterans affairs; energy and water; and legislative branch.

“These bills provide funding to rebuild our military infrastructure, support military families, improve nuclear security, support our nation’s energy and water infrastructure and assure the smooth and safe operations of the Legislative Branch,” House Appropriations Committee Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-N.J.) said in a statement.

The House military construction measure includes $921 million in additional off-budget spending.

The report said the Senate Appropriations Committee has passed the military construction and energy and water appropriations bills and is scheduled this week to mark up the legislative branch measure.
