The President signed the VA-HUD appropriations bill on October 27.
The House and Senate approved the VA-HUD conference report on October 19th, which had incorporated in it, the Energy and Water Bill, which includes funding for science programs within the Department of Energy. The President is expected to sign the bill.
On September 28, the House passed the Energy and Water conference report by a vote of 301-118, and the Senate passed the conference report by a vote of 57 to 37 on October 2. The President vetoed the bill, however, because of disagreements over a water provision involving the Missouri River. This bill has now been folded into the VA-HUD bill, which is pending House approval. Funding for the Department of Energy (DOE) and its research and development programs is likely to remain at the conference report levels.
