House Passes FY 2018 Omnibus Spending Bill
The House of Representatives recently passed a $1.23 trillion Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 omnibus spending bill that includes funding for HUD. The Make America Secure and Prosperous Appropriations Act for FY 2018, H.R. 3354, is now headed to the Senate. However, the bill is not expected to be brought up for a vote there. Instead, the measure may be used as the House’s starting position for negotiations over full-year FY 2018 appropriations legislation that could take place at a later time.
