The House voted Thursday to go to conference over a consolidated spending bill that includes U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) appropriations.

The Senate in August passed a four-bill minibus appropriations package that included USDA and FDA funding. The House has not passed its own version of that funding, but has voted to go straight to conference instead. No new provisions can be included in a legislative conference.

Senate conferees on the bill’s upcoming negotiations include Senators Richard Shelby (R-AL), Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), John Hoeven (R-ND), James Lankford (R-OK), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Jack Reed (D-RI), Tom Udall (D-NM), Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and Chris Coons (D-DE).

House conferees include Representatives Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ), Robert Aderholt (R-AL), Mike Simpson (R-), Ken Calvert (R-CA), Tom Cole (R-OK), Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Tom Graves (R-GA), David Young (R-IA), John Rutherford (R-FL), Nita Lowey (D-NY), David Price (D-NC), Sanford Bishop (D-GA), Betty McCollum (D-MN), Michael Quigley (D-IL) and Chellie Pingree (D-ME).

Current USDA and FDA appropriations expire September 30 and just seven legislative working days remain on the Congressional schedule before the deadline.
