Budget & Appropriations – President Signs Two-Week Continuing Resolution

On December 7, President Trump signed a continuing resolution to continue government operations for several federal departments until December 21. Earlier this year, legislation was enacted to fund the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies (L-HHS-ED) for fiscal year 2019. The bill signed last week prevents a partial government shut-down of seven federal departments, including the Departments of Justice, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development. Congressional leaders and the President will continue to negotiate a spending bill to cover those agencies for the remainder of the fiscal year.
