House Begins Consideration of Transportation, Housing Spending Bill

On June 4, the House began its consideration of the FY2016 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies spending bill (H.R. 2577). The House Appropriations Committee approved the legislation on May 13 (see The Source, 5/15/15).

The legislation would allocate $55.3 billion overall in FY2016. This amount is $1.5 billion above FY2015, but $9.7 billion below President Obama’s FY2016 request.

During the consideration of the measure, the House adopted, by voice vote, an amendment by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) to increase funding for community planning and development and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS by $3 million.

The House is expected to continue its consideration of the bill next week.
