This information is directly from the text of House Resolution No. 1.  I literally sat down and read through the hundreds of pages fromt the appropriation provisions section of the resolution.  If you go to House.gov, you can view the Record of Votes from the main page and the links to the text of the various bills on each record. 

When I published this information, there was one version of HR 1 that was linked to the "Passed" voting record.  That text can be found here:

http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=111_cong_bills&docid=f:h1ih.txt.pdf

However, visiting the webpage this morning to get this link, I have found that there are now two versions, an introduced and a passed version. 

The link to the passed version:

http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=111_cong_bills&docid=f:h1eh.txt.pdf


Looks like I will need to review the newly listed passed version and see where revisions are requried.  I would guess that 95%+ of the information above is identical to that as was passed.
