The House of Representatives is expected to vote on the “Ryan budget” later this week, either on Wednesday or Thursday, before adjourning for a two week Congressional recess. See the Budget article above for specifics on how this budget plan would impact people with I/DD.
Again, the Senate is not likely to vote on a 2013 Budget as the Budget Control Act already set spending caps for FY 2012 to 2021.
It is doubtful that federal funding issues, including the automatic spending cuts scheduled to take effect in January 2013, will be resolved before the November election. If not, then Congress could reconvene in a post-election “lame duck” session to try and resolve the issues and any other outstanding matters.
