But the final agreement also reflects several other changes from both the House and Senate-passed bills. According to the conferees' report, it includes language similar to that passed by the House that requires people seeking unemployment benefits to be actively seeking work. It also gives up to 10 states flexibility on how to use federal unemployment funds.

But in a defeat for House Republicans, the final strikes language delaying four EPA rules.

Also, the bill does not include an extension and modification of the federal flood insurance program.
