ABSTRACT

S. Rept. 116-158: Government Shutdown Accountability Act, Report of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, United States Senate, to Accompany S. 1877, Including Cost Estimate of the Congressional Budget Office, November 12, 2019   [open pdf - 421KB]

From the Purpose and Summary: "S. 1877, the Prevent Government Shutdowns Act of 2019, seeks to end government shutdowns during a lapse in appropriations by providing for an automatic appropriation at current levels and providing incentives for Congress to pass regular appropriations while automatic appropriations are in place. The legislation limits official travel of Members of Congress and senior Executive Branch officials and holds Members' pay in escrow during a period of automatic appropriations. It also requires daily quorum calls and prohibits business from being in order on the Senate and House floor other than appropriations bills."
