Senate Appropriations Committee Passes Bill to Fund Military Space Programs

On July 17, the Senate Appropriations Committee passed its FY 2015 Department of Defense Appropriations bill. The bill includes funding for military space programs. The U.S. House of Representatives passed its version of the FY 2015 Department of Defense Appropriations bill in late June.

With only a few legislative days remaining on the calendar before the end of the current fiscal year, legislators are likely to pass a continuing resolution (CR) until after the November mid-term elections. At that point, the Defense Appropriations bill could be brought to the Senate floor or be wrapped up into a larger omnibus appropriations bill to fund the remainder of FY 2015.
