                                _______
                                

Mr. Frelinghuysen, from the Committee on Appropriations, submitted the 
                               following

                              A N N U A L

                              R E P O R T

    The Committee on Appropriations is the principal arm 
through which the House of Representatives exercises its 
constitutional responsibility to provide funds for the 
operations of the various activities of the Federal Government. 
Clause 1(b) of rule X of the House provides that the committee 
shall have jurisdiction over the ``Appropriation of the revenue 
for the support of the Government.'' This responsibility has 
basically been vested in the committee since 1865.
    The committee has been established by the House with a 
membership of 52 during the 115th Congress. With relatively few 
exceptions, the responsibilities of the committee are carried 
out through its 12 subcommittees which in turn report to the 
full committee. The subcommittees are organized essentially on 
a functional basis with recognition of the existing structure 
of the Departments and agencies within the executive branch. 
(The jurisdictional assignments of subcommittees during the 
115th Congress are displayed in Appendix C.)

                   SUMMARY OF APPROPRIATIONS ACTIONS


                             115th Congress

    The House Committee on Appropriations implemented an 
ambitious agenda during the 115th Congress. Unfinished work on 
eleven fiscal year 2017 bills from the 114th Congress continued 
in earnest during the first session of the 115th Congress. The 
Committee completed the fiscal year 2017 appropriations bills 
in May 2017, following the passage of an interim 1-week 
continuing resolution. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 
2017, (H.R. 244) was enacted as Public Law 115-31 on May 5, 
2017, two days after the House approved the measure by a vote 
of 309-118.
    The contents of Public Law 115-31 are as follows:

      Division A--Agriculture, Rural Development, Food 
and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Appropriations 
Act, 2017;
      Division B--Commerce, Justice, Science, and 
Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017;
      Division C--Department of Defense Appropriations 
Act, 2017;
      Division D--Energy and Water Development and 
Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017;
      Division E--Financial Services and General 
Government Appropriations Act, 2017;
      Division F--Department of Homeland Security 
Appropriations Act, 2017;
      Division G--Department of the Interior, 
Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017;
      Division I--Legislative Branch Appropriations 
Act, 2017;
      Division J--Department of State, Foreign 
Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2017;
      Division K--Transportation, Housing and Urban 
Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017; and
      Division L--Military Construction and Veterans 
Affairs--Additional Appropriations Act, 2017.

    Enactment of Public Law 115-31 cleared the way for the 
Committee to initiate work on fiscal year 2018 bills. The 
Committee held its first subcommittee markup on June 12, 2017, 
leading to the full committee reporting the fiscal year 2018 
Military Construction and Veterans Affairs bill on June 22, 
2017. Within a month, the Committee reported out all fiscal 
year 2018 appropriations bills with the last bills approved on 
July 19, 2017.
    The Military Construction and Veterans Affairs bill was 
then combined with the Defense, Energy & Water and Legislative 
Branch bills, along with funding for the border wall, and 
presented together to the House as the Make America Secure 
Appropriations Act, 2018 (H.R. 3219). The House passed this 
package of four appropriations bills on July 27, 2017, by a 
vote of 235-192. All 12 appropriation bills were then combined 
into H.R. 3354 and passed by the House on September 14, 2017, 
by a vote of 211-198. This was the first time the House had 
passed all twelve appropriations bills before the end of the 
fiscal year since 2009.
    Final action on the fiscal year 2018 appropriations bills 
occurred in March 2018, with enactment of the Consolidated 
Appropriations Act, 2018 (H.R. 1625). The House debated and 
passed the bill on March 22, 2018, by a vote of 256-167. The 
next day, the Senate approved the package by a vote of 65-32. 
Later that day, March 23, 2018, the President signed the Act 
into law. (P.L. 115-141)
    The contents of Public Law 115-141 are as follows:

      Division A--Agriculture, Rural Development, Food 
and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Appropriations 
Act, 2018;
      Division B--Commerce, Justice, Science, and 
Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2018;
      Division C--Department of Defense Appropriations 
Act, 2018;
      Division D--Energy and Water Development and 
Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2018;
      Division E--Financial Services and General 
Government Appropriations Act, 2018;
      Division F--Department of Homeland Security 
Appropriations Act, 2018;
      Division G--Department of the Interior, 
Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2018;
      Division H--Departments of Labor, Health and 
Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies 
Appropriations Act, 2018;
      Division I--Legislative Branch Appropriations 
Act, 2018;
      Division J--Military Construction and Veterans 
Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2018;
      Division K--Department of State, Foreign 
Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2018; and
      Division L--Transportation, Housing and Urban 
Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2018.

    With the passage of H.R. 244 and H.R. 1625, the Congress 
completed final action on 23 spending bills by March 23, 2018.
    During the second session, the Committee's work on the 
fiscal year 2019 appropriations bills followed a similarly 
ambitious schedule. The first subcommittee markups for the 
year, for the Military Construction & Veterans Affairs and 
Legislative Branch bills, were reported to the full Committee 
on April 26, 2018.
    The Committee once again completed work on all 12 
appropriations bills before the end of July, reporting the last 
bill, Homeland Security, on July 26, 2018. The Energy & Water 
bill, H.R. 5895, became the vehicle for three bills, including 
the Military Construction and Legislative Branch bills. The 
package was approved by the House on June 8, 2018, by a vote of 
235-179. Conferees were appointed on June 28, 2018 to complete 
work on the package. A meeting of the conferees was held on 
September 5, 2018. The House agreed to the conferenced version 
of the package on September 13, 2018 by a vote of 377-20. The 
President signed the package on September 21, 2018. (P.L. 115-
244)
    The Defense bill was debated and passed by the House on 
June 28, 2018, by a vote of 359-49. The Senate combined the 
Defense and Labor, HHS bills and sent the amended bill back to 
the House. Conferees were appointed on September 4, 2018 and a 
meeting of the conferees was held on September 13, 2018. The 
conference agreement, along with the first continuing 
resolution (through December 7, 2018), was filed in the House 
that same day. The House approved the package on September 26, 
2018, by a vote of 361-61. The President signed the package on 
September 28, 2018. (P.L. 115-245) This was the first time five 
bills had been enacted before the start of the fiscal year 
since 1996.
    The Interior-Environment bill, H.R. 6147, initially became 
the vehicle for two bills (combined with Financial Services), 
when the House debated and passed the package on July 19, 2018, 
by a vote of 217-99. The Senate then added two bills, 
Agriculture and Transportation, approved the four-bill package 
and sent it back to the House. Conferees were appointed on 
September 6, 2018, and a meeting of the conferees was held on 
September 13, 2018. As of the end of the 2d session, these 
bills along with the Commerce, Justice, Science; Homeland 
Security; and State and Foreign Operations were still under 
deliberation.
    The Committee also provided crucial emergency funding in 
fiscal year 2017 and 2018 supplemental appropriations in order 
to respond to and recover from multiple disasters including 
hurricanes, wildfires, floods, typhoons, and volcanic 
eruptions. On September 8, 2017, the House approved H.R. 601 by 
a vote of 316-90. Division B of this package contained the 
first of three supplemental appropriations providing emergency 
funding in response to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and other 
natural disasters. The President signed the bill the same day 
it was passed by the House. (P.L. 115-56)
    The second supplemental was first passed by the House on 
December 21, 2017 by a vote of 251-169. After no additional 
legislative action on this bill, the House passed another 
version on October 12, 2017 by a vote of 353-69. This emergency 
funding was provided to replenish emergency funding accounts in 
response to Hurricane Maria and other natural disasters in 
Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, as well as 
wildfires in the West. The President signed this supplemental 
on October 26, 2017. (P.L. 115-72) The third supplemental, H.R. 
1892, was passed by the House on February 6, 2018 by a vote of 
245-182. The bill was amended by the Senate, after which the 
House approved the amended version on February 9, 2018, by a 
vote of 240-186. This bill also included language amending the 
spending caps for fiscal years 2018 and 2019; extending the 
continuing resolution through March 23, 2018; and extending the 
debt limit, as estimated, through March 1, 2019. The President 
signed the bill the same day it was passed by the House, 
February 9, 2018. (P.L. 115-123)
    During consideration of appropriations bills during the 
115th Congress, the Committee continued to place a high 
priority on having a Member-driven process through ``regular 
order,'' so that Members of the House could be assured of an 
open, transparent, and fair appropriations process. All Members 
of the House were invited to submit their priorities to every 
subcommittee before bills were drafted. Bills were considered 
in open subcommittee and committee markups, with information on 
those bills publicly available before markups. Every effort was 
made to ensure that any Member of the House who had an 
amendment that complied with House Rules would have the 
opportunity to have that amendment considered on the House 
floor. This commitment to providing opportunities for all 
Members to have input into the bills helped to ensure support 
for the bills throughout the legislative process.
    The Committee placed a high priority on conducting detailed 
reviews of agency budgets and exercising comprehensive 
oversight on the programs under its jurisdiction. Therefore, an 
aggressive schedule of budget and oversight hearings was 
developed for the 115th Congress. The Committee conducted 109 
hearings, receiving testimony from 1,249 witnesses during the 
first session, and conducted 84 hearings with 651 witnesses 
during the second session. These hearings informed and guided 
the Committee in the development of the fiscal year 2018 and 
fiscal year 2019 appropriations bills.
    In total, 28 regular appropriations bills were enacted in 
the 115th Congress (11 for fiscal year 2017, 12 for fiscal year 
2018, and 5 for fiscal year 2019), in addition to three 
supplementals and eight continuing resolutions.
    The charts and tables following this summary display the 
history of fiscal year 2018 and fiscal year 2019 
appropriations, as well as budget comparisons for the fiscal 
year 2018 and fiscal year 2019 funding levels.

               INVESTIGATIONS CONDUCTED BY THE COMMITTEE


                            (115th Congress)

    The Appropriations Committee is dedicated to strong and 
active oversight of Departmental programs and activities. In 
addition to the routine oversight conducted as part of the 
appropriations process the committee uses its own Survey and 
Investigations Division to pursue program issues in depth 
including those specific to an Agency or Department and those 
that are crosscutting with government-wide impacts. As of the 
end of 115th Congress, the investigative staff has completed or 
has under active review 37 separate studies or investigations.
    The various subcommittees, in letters (known as directives) 
signed by the chairman and ranking minority member, originate 
requests for investigations; the request letters must be 
approved and signed by the chairman and ranking minority member 
of the full committee before an investigation is pursued.
    When the committee directs S&I to conduct an investigation, 
the Director assembles a team of expert investigators. 
Competence and objectivity are the criteria for selection of 
individual investigators. Investigators include a small number 
of permanent staff, personnel on detail from Federal agencies, 
and independent contractors.
    Directives generally call for investigations to be 
completed within 3 to 6 months although there may be some 
longer-term studies. Some studies include briefings to 
subcommittee staff or result in several memos in addition to, 
or in lieu of, a final report. The format and frequency of 
reports are tailored to the needs of the subcommittee.
    A catalog of all the investigations conducted from January 
2017 through December 2018, listed by the requesting 
subcommittee, follows.

    With respect to the above listing, it should be noted that since 
studies originate with the subcommittees, any information developed 
during the course of an investigation is reported to the subcommittee 
which requested such study or examination as well as the chairman and 
ranking minority member of the full committee. This information may be 
released for publication only when the subcommittee so determines as 
provided by section 8 of the committee's rules.

                      SUPPORT PROVIDED BY THE GAO

    In addition to the information made available to the 
Committee through its Surveys and Investigations Staff, the 
Committee also utilizes the resources of the Government 
Accountability Office. The Committee receives a copy of every 
GAO report addressed to the Congress. In recent years the scope 
of the GAO auditing and review capability has been enlarged to 
include management surveys. GAO has extracted from those 
reports and compiled in separate volumes a list of so-called 
``significant audit findings'' for special use by the Committee 
staff in the annual appropriations hearings. These findings 
relate to matters which are felt to require corrective action 
by the Committee's efforts, through legislation, or through 
administrative efforts. This compilation is designed to 
identify problem areas in an individual agency which might have 
applicability to other organizations.
    Additionally, the Committee frequently calls upon GAO to 
make special studies and investigations.
    A listing of some reports and staff studies by the GAO 
which were underway during the 115th Congress follows:

          (Adopted for the 115th Congress on January 24, 2017)

    RESOLVED, That the rules and practices of the Committee on

Representatives, the Committee and each of its subcommittees is 
authorized:
          (1) To sit and act at such times and places within

          (3) The Chairman shall announce the date, place, and 
        subject matter of each committee meeting for the 
        transaction of business, which may not commence earlier 
        than the third day on which members have notice 
        thereof, unless the Chairman, with the concurrence of 
        the Ranking Minority Member, or the Committee by 
        majority vote with a quorum present for the transaction 
        of business, determines there is good cause to begin

        make the announcement at the earliest possible date. An 
        announcement shall be published promptly in the Daily 
        Digest and made publicly available in electronic form.
          (4) At least 24 hours prior to the commencement of a

          (2) Committee records (including hearings, data,

        of the Committee. Such records shall be the property of

the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 and clause 4 (a)(1) 
of rule X of the Rules of the House of Representatives, shall 
be conducted in open session except when the Committee in open 
session and with a majority present, determines by roll call 
vote that the testimony to be taken at that hearing on that day 
may be related to a matter of national security; except that 
the Committee may by the same procedure close one subsequent 
day of hearing. A transcript of all such hearings shall be 
printed and a copy furnished to each Member, Delegate, and the 
Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico.
    (b) Other Hearings:
          (1) All other hearings conducted by the Committee or

        when the Committee or subcommittee in open session and 
        with a majority present determines by roll call vote 
        that all or part of the remainder of that hearing on 
        that day shall be closed to the public because 
        disclosure of testimony, evidence, or other matters to 
        be considered would endanger the national security or 
        would violate any law or Rule of the House of 
        Representatives. Notwithstanding the requirements of 
        the preceding sentence, a majority of those present at 
        a hearing conducted by the Committee or any of its 
        subcommittees, there being in attendance the number 
        required under section 5 (c) of these rules to be 
        present for the purpose of taking testimony, (1) may 
        vote to close the hearing for the sole purpose of 
        discussing whether testimony or evidence to be received 
        would endanger the national security or violate clause 
        2 (k)(5) of rule XI of the Rules of the House of 
        Representatives or (2) may vote to close the hearing, 
        as provided in clause 2 (k)(5) of such rule. No Member 
        of the House of Representatives may be excluded from 
        nonparticipatory attendance at any hearing of the 
        Committee or its subcommittees unless the House of 
        Representatives shall by majority vote authorize the 
        Committee or any of its subcommittees, for purposes of 
        a particular series of hearings on a particular article 
        of legislation or on a particular subject of 
        investigation, to close its hearings to Members by the 
        same procedures designated in this subsection for 
        closing hearings to the public; Provided, however, That 
        the Committee or its subcommittees may by the same 
        procedure vote to close five subsequent days of 
        hearings.
          (2) Subcommittee chairmen shall coordinate the 
        development of schedules for meetings or hearings after 
        consultation with the Chairman and other subcommittee 
        chairmen with a view toward avoiding simultaneous 
        scheduling of Committee and subcommittee meetings or 
        hearings.
          (3) Each witness who is to appear before the 
        Committee or any of its subcommittees as the case may 
        be, insofar as is practicable, shall file in advance of 
        such appearance, a written statement of the proposed 
        testimony and shall limit the oral presentation at such 
        appearance to a brief summary, except that this 
        provision shall not apply to any witness appearing 
        before the Committee in the overall budget hearings.
          (4) Each witness appearing in a nongovernmental 
        capacity before the Committee, or any of its 
        subcommittees as the case may be, shall to the greatest 
        extent practicable, submit a written statement 
        including a curriculum vitae and a disclosure of the 
        amount and source (by agency and program) of any 
        Federal grant (or subgrant thereof) or contract (or 
        subcontract thereof), or contracts or payments 
        originating from a foreign government, received during 
        the current fiscal year or either of the two previous 
        fiscal years by the witness or by an entity represented 
        by the witness and related to the subject matter of the 
        hearing. Such statements, with appropriate redactions 
        to protect the privacy of witnesses, shall be made 
        publicly available in electronic form not later than 
        one day after the witness appears. The disclosure 
        referred to in this paragraph shall include the amount 
        and source of each Federal grant (or subgrant thereof) 
        or contract (or subcontract thereof) related to the 
        subject matter of the hearing, and the amount and

        witnesses selected by the Minority to testify with 
        respect to the matter under consideration during at 
        least one day of hearings thereon.
          (2) The Committee and its subcommittees shall observe 
        the 5-minute rule during the interrogation of witnesses 
        until such time as each Member of the Committee or 
        subcommittee who so desires has had an opportunity to 
        question the witness.
    (e) Broadcasting and Photographing of Committee Meetings 
and Hearings--Whenever a hearing or meeting conducted by the 
full Committee or any of its subcommittees is open to the 
public, those proceedings shall be open to coverage by 
television, radio, and still photography, and shall be 
conducted in accordance with the requirements set forth in 
clause (4)(f) of rule XI of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives. Neither the full Committee Chairman or 
subcommittee chairman shall limit the number of television or 
still cameras to fewer than two representatives from each 
medium (except for legitimate space or safety, in which case 
pool coverage shall be authorized). To the maximum practicable, 
the Committee shall provide audio and video coverage of each 
hearing or meeting for the transaction of business in a manner 
that allows the public to easily listen to and view the 
proceedings and shall maintain the recordings of such coverage 
in a manner that is easily accessible to the public.

or respective subcommittee, determines there is good cause to 
begin the hearing sooner, or if the Committee or subcommittee 
so determines by majority vote, a quorum being present for the 
transaction of business, the Chairman or subcommittee chairman 
shall make the announcement at the earliest possible date. Any 
announcement made under this subsection shall be promptly 
published in the Daily Digest and made publicly available in 
electronic form.

                      Special Oversight Functions

    3. (a) The Committee on Appropriations shall conduct such 
studies and examinations of the organization and operation of 
executive departments and other executive agencies (including 
an agency the majority of the stock of which is owned by the 
United States) as it considers necessary to assist it in the 
determination of matters within its jurisdiction.

           *       *       *       *       *       *       *


                   Additional Functions of Committees

    4. (a)(1)(A) The Committee on Appropriations shall, within 
30 days after the transmittal of the Budget to the Congress 
each year, hold hearings on the Budget as a whole with 
particular reference to--
            (i) the basic recommendations and budgetary 
        policies of the President in the presentation of the 
        Budget; and
            (ii) the fiscal, financial, and economic 
        assumptions used as bases in arriving at total 
        estimated expenditures and receipts.
    (B) In holding hearings pursuant to subdivision (A), the 
committee shall receive testimony from the Secretary of the 
Treasury, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, 
the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, and such 
other persons as the committee may desire.
    (C) A hearing under subdivision (A), or any part thereof, 
shall be held in open session, except when the committee, in 
open session and with a quorum present, determines by record 
vote that the testimony to be taken at that hearing on that day 
may be related to a matter of national security. The committee 
may by the same procedure close one subsequent day of hearing. 
A transcript of all such hearings shall be printed and a copy 
thereof furnished to each Member, Delegate, and the Resident 
Commissioner.
    (D) A hearing under subdivision (A), or any part thereof, 
may be held before a joint meeting of the committee and the 
Committee on Appropriations of the Senate in accordance with 
such procedures as the two committees jointly may determine.
    (2) Pursuant to section 401(b)(2) of the Congressional 
Budget Act of 1974, when a committee reports a bill or joint 
resolution that provides new entitlement authority as defined 
in section 3(9) of that Act, and enactment of the bill or joint 
resolution, as reported, would cause a breach of the 
committee's pertinent allocation of new budget authority under 
section 302(a) of that Act, the bill or joint resolution may be 
referred to the Committee on Appropriations with instructions 
to report it with recommendations (which may include an 
amendment limiting the total amount of new entitlement 
authority provided in the bill or joint resolution). If the 
Committee on Appropriations fails to report a bill or joint 
resolution so referred within 15 calendar days (not counting 
any day on which the house is not in session), the committee 
automatically shall be discharged from consideration of the 
bill or joint resolution, and the bill or joint resolution 
shall be placed on the appropriate calendar.
    (3) In addition, the Committee on Appropriations shall 
study on a continuing basis those provisions of law that (on 
the first day of the first fiscal year for which the 
congressional budget process is effective) provide spending 
authority of permanent budget authority, and shall report to 
the House from time to time its recommendations for terminating 
or modifying such provisions.
    (4) In the manner provided by section 302 of the 
Congressional Budget Act of 1974, the Committee on 
Appropriations (after consulting with the Committee on 
Appropriations of the Senate) shall subdivide any allocations 
made to it in the joint explanatory statement accompanying the 
conference report on such concurrent resolution, and promptly 
report the subdivisions to the House as soon as practicable 
after a concurrent resolution on the budget for a fiscal year 
is agreed to.
