The bill contains the full legislation and funding for all of the 12 annual Appropriations bills:

  1. Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration
  2. Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies
  3. Defense
  4. Energy and Water Development
  5. Financial Services and General Government
  6. Homeland Security
  7. Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies
  8. Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies
  9. Legislative Branch
  10. Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies
  11. State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs
  12. Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies
In addition to the 12 sections, it includes a number of policy riders, which authorize action unrelated to funding. It totals $1.3 trillion and was 2,330 pages long.
