Senate Passes FY20 Spending Package with Increases for Affordable Housing
By a vote of 84-9, the Senate recently approved its fiscal year 2020 (FY20) HUD appropriations bill. The House passed its HUD FY20 appropriations bill in June. And now, with the passage of the Senate bill, the two bills must be reconciled before a final spending bill to ensure continued funding for federal programs can be enacted. House and Senate Appropriations Committees must agree on spending limits for each of the 12 subcommittees, including the one that funds HUD.
