The House Appropriations Committee approved the measure on June 9 (see The Source, 6/10/16); the Senate Appropriations Committee approved its version of the bill (S.3067) on June 16 (see The Source, 06/17/16).

The bill would provide $21.7 billion in funding for the Department of Treasury, Executive Office of the President, and several agencies, including the Small Business Administration. This amount is $1.5 billion below FY2016 and $2.69 billion below President Obama’s request.

As amended, the bill would prohibit funding from being used to require women to register for Selective Service, also known as the draft.
