Budget & Appropriations: House to Vote on Short Term Spending Bill to Avert Shutdown

The House is scheduled to vote Tuesday on a funding stopgap measure to prevent a government shutdown. The measure would extend the current continuing resolution (CR) from November 21 to December 20. The continuing resolution (CR) comes as lawmakers continue to disagree over parameters for new spending bills, with the largest controversies centered around President Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico. Leaders of the Appropriations committees are negotiating over how to allocate funds among 12 spending bills. Another CR would allow them to put off final decisions about how to deal with the border wall.
