The House version of the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 Department of Agriculture and Rural Development budget. This would appropriate $109.2 million in gross spending. Of this, $11.8 million is federal money, and the rest is from state and local taxes and fees.

Referred to the Senate on June 13, 2019
To "zero-out" all of the appropriations in the House-passed version of this budget, leaving it as just a "shell" or "placeholder." This is a procedural device used for launching negotiations over the differences between the House and Senate budgets, and eventually for negotiating a final budget between a Republican-controlled legislature and a Democratic governor.
Received in the House on June 18, 2019
To concur with the Senate-passed version of the bill.
