This bill was the vehicle for passage of the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 and the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016, also known as the omnibus spending bill. H.R. 2029 would fund the federal government for the remainder of fiscal year 2016 (through September 30, 2016). The government had been funded through stop-gap measures over the last several months, with the latest expiring on December 22, 2015 The House passed the two parts separately: House vote on tax provisions and House vote on omnibus spending bill. The Senate then voted on the combined package. The bill was previously the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016, as passed by both the House and Senate. The Senate had made changes, sending it back to the House. On December 17-18 the House made the bill the vehicle for passage of the above measures. The above measures completely replaced the text of the bill as previously passed, but the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs act can be found in Division J of the part of the bill that is the Consolidated Appropriations Act. The Senate passed the combined package on December 18, sending it to the President for a signature.
