On September 27, President Trump signed a continuing resolution (CR) to fund the government for an additional eight weeks beyond the start of fiscal year (FY) 2020 on October 1. This CR, providing level funding, passed the Senate on September 26, following House passage earlier in the month. After a two-week recess, which starts today, Senators plan to resume work on full-year FY 2020 appropriations bills. The Senate Appropriations Committee has approved 10 of 12 appropriations bills. It still has not approved the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations bill, which contains most of The Arc’s priority discretionary programs.
