On the Blog: On Track

We assess the status of the appropriations bills for fiscal year 2015 in a post entitled: “Appropriations Progress!

Surprisingly, things are pretty well on track. In the House, at least.

Featured Item

The House does not meet this week. The Senate’s schedule is unclear.

The most recently introduced appropriations bill is H.R. 5013, the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2015.

The bill would spend money on the operations of the Agency for International Development, the Department of State, the Export-Import Bank, the Millennium Challenge Program, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the Peace Corps, and similar agencies.

Passage of H.R. 5013 would spend about $425 per U.S. family.
