VA-HUD Spending Bill Headed to President

This week, Congress cleared the conference report for the FY2001 Veterans Affairs, Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill (H.R. 4635). The House approved the conference report on October 19 by a vote of 386-24. The Senate followed suit the same day, approving the measure by a vote of 85-8. Last week, the Senate approved the bill with a revised version of the FY2001 Energy and Water spending bill as an amendment (see The Source, 10/13/00, p. 3).

The bill will level-fund the Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS program at $232 million. The Stewart McKinney Homeless Assistance grants program also will be level-funded at $1 billion. The President is expected to sign the bill.
