H R 5895        Energy and Water, Legislative Branch, and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act, 2019 Yes This legislation provides funding for one-fourth of the government totaling $147.576 billion in discretionary funding for FY 2019. The bill provides $86.5 billion for the Department of Veterans Affairs, the largest amount ever for the VA – $5 billion over FY 2018 levels. This includes $1.75 billion to fund programs authorized under the VA MISSION Act, and $10.3 billion for Military Construction Projects. Also includes report language related to court-mandated spills on the Snake River System.

 

SUSPENSION BILLS

**A suspension bill is a bill passed by the House through suspending the rules to move quickly, circumventing the House Rules Committee. Suspension bills are typically less controversial pieces of legislation, and as the rules are being suspended, they require a higher threshold, two-thirds of those voting in the House, to pass. Additionally, these bills are often passed by a voice vote, without a formal roll call vote.
