House Adds Two New Partial Funding Bills To Agenda


The House will consider Wednesday two additional partial funding bills — one to pay for National Guard and other military reserve; another to fund the National Institutes of Health — alongside the three bills that failed Tuesday night.

The House Rules Committee posted the bills Wednesday morning. Votes are expected Wednesday afternoon.

The three previous bills — to fund part of the Department of Veterans Affairs, the National Parks Service and the Washington, D.C., government — failed to get the two-thirds majorities they needed to pass Tuesday night. They will be brought up again with the two new bills under procedures that require only a simply majority to pass.
