As part of a “minibus” package that would also fund certain legislative branch and military appropriations, the Senate has approved a $147 billion package that includes Energy and Water appropriations. The vote came in at 92 yeas to 5 nays on 12 September 2018.
The bill includes $44.6 billion for Federal energy and water programs including research into renewable energy and fossil fuels. It also funds flood-control projects, waterway restoration, and regional ports and waterways. Agencies receiving funding under the Energy and Water portion of the appropriations include the U.S. Department of Energy, the Army Corps of Engineers, and the Department of the Interior.
The package now goes to the House for consideration before going to the White House for President Trump's signature. It is expected to pass in the House. Overall, the funding package would, if signed by the President, avoid a government shutdown. A Senate report on the energy and water portions of the appropriations is available here.
