Further Additional Continuing Appropriations Act, 2019

Further Additional Continuing Appropriations Act, 2019
This joint resolution provides continuing FY2019 appropriations to several federal agencies through the earlier of February 28, 2019, or the enactment of the applicable appropriations legislation.
It is known as a continuing resolution (CR) and ends the partial government shutdown that began after the existing CR expired on December 21, 2018, because seven of the remaining FY2019 appropriations bills have not been enacted.
(Five of the FY2019 appropriations bills were enacted last year, including
  • the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2019;
  • the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2019;
  • the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2019;
  • the Legislative Branch Appropriations Act, 2019; and
  • the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2019.)
Additionally, the CR has the effect of extending through February 28, 2019, several authorities and programs that were extended in prior CRs, including
  • the Violence Against Women Act,
  • the authority for the Environmental Protection Agency to collect and spend certain fees related to pesticides,
  • the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program, and
  • several authorities related to immigration.

Making further continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2019, and for other purposes.
Official Title: Making further continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2019, and for other purposes. The Continuing Appropriations Act, 2019 (division C of ) is further amended
  • (1) by striking the date specified in section 105(3) and inserting "February 15, 2019"; and
  • (2) by adding after section 136 the following:
Amounts made available in this Act for personnel pay, allowances, and benefits in each department and agency shall be available for obligations incurred pursuant to subsection (c) of section 1341 of title 31, United States Code.
All obligations incurred and in anticipation of the appropriations made and authority granted by this Act for the purposes of maintaining the essential level of activity to protect life and property and bringing about orderly termination of Government function, and for purposes as otherwise authorized by law, are hereby ratified and approved if otherwise in accord with the provisions of this Act.
If a State (or another Federal grantee) used State funds (or the grantee's non-Federal funds) to continue carrying out a Federal program or furloughed State employees (or the grantee's employees) whose compensation is advanced or reimbursed in whole or in part by the Federal Government
  • (1) such furloughed employees shall be compensated at their standard rate of compensation for such period;
  • (2) the State (or such other grantee) shall be reimbursed for expenses that would have been paid by the Federal Government during such period had appropriations been available, including the cost of compensating such furloughed employees, together with interest thereon calculated under section 6503(d) of title 31, United States Code; and
  • (3) the State (or such other grantee) may use funds available to the State (or the grantee) under such Federal program to reimburse such State (or the grantee), together with interest thereon calculated under section 6503(d) of title 31, United States Code.
For purposes of this section, the term and the term shall have the meaning as such term is defined under the applicable Federal program under subsection (a). In addition, "to continue carrying out a Federal program" means the continued performance by a State or other Federal grantee, during the period of a lapse in appropriations, of a Federal program that the State or such other grantee had been carrying out prior to the period of the lapse in appropriations.
