Outcome

10/3/2013--Introduced. Impact Aid Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2014 - Makes appropriations, out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, and out of applicable corporate or other revenues, receipts, and funds, for the Impact Aid program (compensates local educational agencies for the financial burden of federal activities affecting their school districts) of the Department of Education for FY2014, and for other purposes, such amounts as may be necessary, at a rate for operations as provided in the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 (division F of P.L. 113-6), for continuing projects or activities (including the costs of direct loans and loan guarantees) that are not otherwise specifically provided for in this joint resolution, that were conducted in FY2013, and for which appropriations, funds, or other authority were made available by such Act under the heading "Department of Education--Impact Aid." Requires the rate of operations to be calculated to reflect the full amount of any reduction required in FY2013 pursuant to: (1) the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 (P.L. 113-6), and (2) the presidential sequestration order dated March 1, 2013, except as attributable to budget authority made available by the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act, 2013 (P.L. 113-2). Makes appropriations and funds made available and authority granted under this joint resolution available until whichever of the following first occurs: (1) enactment into law of an appropriation for any project or activity provided for in this joint resolution, (2) enactment into law of the applicable appropriations Act for FY2014 without any provision for such project or activity, or (3) December 15, 2013. Requires implementation of this joint resolution so that only the most limited funding action be taken in order to provide for continuation of projects and activities. Authorizes amounts made available for civilian personnel compensation and benefits to be apportioned up to the rate for operations necessary to avoid furloughs, consistent with the applicable appropriations Act for FY2013, except that such authority shall not be used until after the agency has taken all necessary actions to reduce or defer non-personnel-related administrative expenses. Expresses the sense of Congress that this joint resolution may also be referred to as the Impact Aid for Local Schools Act.

Referred To The House Committee On Appropriations.

The Impact Aid for Local Schools Act (H.J. Res. 83) would provide funding for the Impact Aid program of the Department of Education through December 15, 2013. The Impact Aid program compensates local agencies for federal activities that affect their school districts.

H.J. Res. 83 would provide appropriations for Fiscal Year 2014 for ongoing projects or activities at a rate consistent with the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act of 2013 (Division F of P.L. 113-6).

The bill is one of a series of appropriations bills issued by the House of Representatives following the government shutdown that began on October 1, 2013. The House strategy has been to introduce and pass individual funding bills to federal agencies. However, Senate leadership has indicated that these bills will not be considered on the Senate floor. The White House and Congress are currently negotiating a package that would fund the government and address the debt ceiling, which is expected to be reached on October 17.
