The Senate can propose any activity.

The House may approve that activity, without providing for funding.

It can be signed into law, even without funding.

All funding must be approved by the House Appropriations Committee before it goes to a vote of the full House.

In many ways, the Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee is one of the most powerful people in WashDC.
