This bill provides FY2019 appropriations and continuing appropriations for several federal agencies.
The bill includes 2 of the 12 FY2019 appropriations bills:
The bill also provides FY2019 continuing appropriations through December 7, 2018, for agencies that have not been funded when FY2019 begins on October 1, 2018. This is known as a continuing resolution (CR) and prevents a partial government shutdown that would otherwise occur if any of the FY2019 appropriations bills have not been enacted by October 1.
The CR funds most projects and activities at the FY2018 levels with several exceptions that provide funding flexibility and additional appropriations to various programs. It also extends several programs that are scheduled to expire at the end of FY2018.
