The act is associated with three separate bill numbers H.R. 4974, S. 2806, and H.R. 2577. For FY2017, the President requested 7.44 billion in new budget authority for regular base budget military construction and family housing activities and an additional 172.5 million for Overseas Contingency Operations OCO construction for a total of 7.62 billion in new budget authority. The bills conference committee recommended 7.73 billion in the base budget and 172.0 million in OCO funding for a total of 7.90 billion in new budget authority. With additional funds available through the rescission of prior-year appropriations, Congress could make available up to 8.03 billion in base funding and 172.0 million in OCO appropriations for a total military construction appropriation of 8.21 billion for FY2017.
