For the bill that funds the operations of Congress, and programs of the Department of Veterans Affairs and Military Construction, the language spelled out above would block government workers from spending money to "pay or reimburse lodging expenses of a Federal employee or official in the course of official Government travel or business at any hotel or property in which the President maintains a financial interest."
For the spending bill that funds the operations of the Pentagon, Beyer's plan would give the Secretary of Defense the power to waive those same prohibitions, "on a case-by-case basis," on the grounds of national security.
But in the funding bill for Energy and Water programs, Beyer's amendment gets specific, listing over three dozen different Trump properties in the U.S. and around the world.
It's not clear if the plans will be considered during debate this week on these four funding bills, which are being grouped together into one 'minibus' funding measure, officially known as the "Make America Secure Appropriations Act."
The House Rules Committee will meet on Monday to sort through amendments proposed to the bill by lawmakers, and determine which ones should be debated.
