Stopgap bill passes Congress

A stopgap spending bill cleared Congress last week after passing the House with a vote of 352-66, on Tues, October 4. This bill will give lawmakers more time to wrap up Fiscal Year 2012 spending issues. The continuing resolution (CR) will keep the government funded through November 18.  This leaves Congress less than 7 weeks to finish FY 2012 appropriations, which they will likely do through an omnibus bill that includes all 12 annual spending bills.
