Budget & Appropriations – Short Term Funding Bill Expires on Friday

With only four days left until the current continuing resolution expires at midnight on March 23, Congress is working to finalize the spending package to cover the remainder of Fiscal Year 2018 to avoid a partial government shutdown. House Republican leaders are expected to present the details of the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill to their members in a closed-door meeting this evening. The full text of the bill will likely be released afterward. It’s not yet clear when the measure will be voted on. At issue have been several controversial policy riders and how to allocate the additional funding provided by the budget deal enacted last month.
