The Department of Homeland Security would receive $1.38 billion for fencing along the southern border and agencies affected by the 35-day government shutdown would be funded through Sept. 30 under the conference agreement on H. J. Res. 31, the vehicle for a seven-bill spending package. The measure represents an agreement between House and Senate negotiators on border security funding and related issues.

|Agriculture-FDA||$23 billion||$32 million more|

|Financial Services||$23.4 billion||Equal|
