With the recommendation that the substitute (H-2) be adopted and that the bill then pass.
To adopt a "placeholder" version of this budget that contains no appropriations or just nominal ones. This is a procedural step designed to facilitate eventual passage of a real budget based on amounts and conditions approved by the House and Senate.
To concur with a Senate-passed version of the bill. The vote advances the bill toward an eventual House-Senate conference committee to work out the differences between the bodies, and probably fold this bill into an single "omnibus" bill for the non-education budget.
