To send the bill back to the Senate "stripped" of all actual appropriations, leaving it as a "template" or "placeholder." This vote is basically a procedural method of launching negotiations to work out the differences between the House and Senate budgets. The House has actually passed its version of the full budget in two "omnibus" bills, House Bills 5578 and 5579.
