Senate Appropriations Committee Advances FY2020 HUD Bill
The budget agreement signed into law on Aug. 2 by President Trump raised defense and nondefense discretionary spending caps for fiscal years 2020 and 2021. The deal allows for, but doesn’t accomplish on its own, enactment of this year's FY20 appropriations bills. Before the new spending caps were established, the House passed several of its FY20 bills, including those that fund HUD. The House HUD appropriations bill passed the House on June 25.
