Bill Summary

H.J.Res. 59 funds government operations at current sequester levels through December 15, 2013. The bill limits the total number of anomalies to 22 and maintains those policy riders included in PL- 113-6. 

Background

On March 21, 2013, the House passed a motion to concur in the Senate Amendment to H.R. 933, the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2013. (See Roll Call #89).  The bill included five full-year appropriations bills: Agriculture; Commerce, Justice, Science; Homeland Security; Defense; and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs. In addition, the bill contained a continuing resolution to fund the remainder of the federal government at levels provided by H.J.Res. 117.  Finally, the bill specifically directed that the sequester applied to funding levels. 

Cost

CBO reported that enacting H.J.Res. 59 would result in $986.3 billion in new budget authority.
