Appropriations Watch – The Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government will mark up their FY19 Appropriations bill on Tuesday, June 19. Bill text is not yet available.
NDAA Watch – Yesterday, the Senate voted to limit debate on the FY19 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) by a margin of 81-15. The move sets up a vote for passage on Monday.
Rescission Deadline – The Senate has until June 22 to act on the administration’s rescission proposal, which would rescind unused appropriated funds from FY17. The measure is currently in the Senate Appropriations Committee after the House passed it earlier this month. The legislation could clear the Senate under a budget law that allows presidential requests to pass with a simple majority.
