Lawmakers wrapped up 2015 with a flurry of legislative accomplishments. Legislators successfully passed a measure to fund the federal government through the remainder of Fiscal Year 2016 (FY16). Paired with the spending bill, Congress approved legislation renewing a host of expired tax extenders, and made a handful of those provisions permanent. Lawmakers also passed a multi-year Highway Bill that reauthorizes surface transportation programs for five years. December saw Congress delay several taxes related to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), reform cybersecurity laws, and pass resolutions condemning the Administration’s new carbon rules.
