On June 6, the House Appropriations Committee released its subcommittee draft for the Fiscal Year 2019 Defense Appropriations bill with a top line allocation of $674.6 billion, including $606.5 billion in discretionary funding—an increase of $17.1 billion above the fiscal year 2018 enacted level, but $900 million below the President’s Defense budget request.

The funding level is consistent with the House’s passage of the National Defense Authorization Act passed last week.
