First FY 2025 Appropriations Bill Passes House

June 6, 2024

The House passed its first fiscal year (FY) 2025 spending bill during yesterday’s session and has completed legislative business for the week. The funding measure for MilCon-VA passed largely along party lines amid Democratic opposition to the GOP-sponsored bill. Lawmakers will take a pause on consideration of pending government funding bills next week as they look to kick off consideration of the FY 2025 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Floor action on appropriations will resume the week of June 24 with consideration of the funding bills for Homeland Security, Defense, and State-Foreign Operations.

  • Meanwhile… The Senate failed to advance a bill that would provide a statutory right to access contraception. However, yesterday’s vote is the first in a series of maneuvers by Senate Democrats to shift attention to reproductive health. For next week, it is expected that Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) will call up legislation to protect and expand access to fertility treatment nationwide. Additionally, the Senate will resume consideration of pending nominations when the chamber gavels back in, starting with David Rosner, Lindsey See, and Judy Chang to be Members of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
