Summary
Title:

Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2019

This joint resolution provides continuing FY2019 appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) 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 DHS shutdown that began on December 22, 2018, because the existing CR expired and the FY2019 DHS appropriations bill has not been enacted.
The CR also
  • makes appropriations available, pursuant to a requirement under current law, to compensate DHS employees furloughed as a result of any lapse in appropriations that began on or about December 22, 2018;
  • reimburses or compensates certain states, federal grantees, and furloughed state employees for the lapse in DHS appropriations; and
  • ratifies and approves certain obligations incurred in anticipation of the appropriations made and the authority granted by this joint resolution.
Additionally, the CR has the effect of extending through February 28, 2019, several immigration programs and authorities that were extended in prior CRs and expired on December 21, 2018.
