Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2018
DIVISION B--FURTHER EXTENSION OF CONTINUING APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2018
Further Extension of Continuing Appropriations Act, 2018
This division amends the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2018 to provide continuing FY2018 appropriations to most federal agencies through March 23, 2018 (February 8, 2018, under current law).
It prevents a partial government shutdown that would otherwise occur when the existing continuing resolution expires because the FY2018 appropriations bills have not been enacted.
The division also: (1) authorizes the Department of Energy to drawdown and sell specified crude oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in FY2018; and (2) makes additional funding available for the 2020 Decennial Census Program, the Southeastern Power Administration, and juror fees.
The division provides emergency funding for the Small Business Administration Disaster Loans Program Account. (Emergency spending is exempt from discretionary spending limits and other budget enforcement rules.)
DIVISION C--DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2018
This division provides appropriations to the Department of Defense for the remainder of FY2018.
This division amends the Food Security Act of 1985 to extend the Department of Agriculture Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) through FY2019. (EQIP provides financial and technical assistance for agricultural producers and land owners to implement certain conservation practices.)
DIVISION E--BUDGETARY EFFECTS
This division exempts the budgetary effects of division D from Pay-As-You-Go (PAYGO) rules and certain budget scorekeeping guidelines.
