Provides supplemental budget appropriations for disaster relief, as well as funding several government agencies for FY2018. [Note: the original bill, “Honoring Hometown Heroes Act,” authorizes state governors to proclaim that the U.S. flag shall be flown at half-staff in the event of the death of a first responder in the line of duty.  This is incorporated into the budget bill.]
