Short Term FY 21 Funding Bill to Be Voted On

The Senate is expected to return on September 29 for a procedural vote on the House-passed continuing resolution (CR). A final vote on the CR is expected by September 30, leaving the President just a few hours to sign the bill before the current spending expires. The measure, H.R 8319, would fund the federal government from the start of fiscal year (FY) 2021 on October 1 through December 11. The vast majority of agencies and programs are level funded and several other provisions are included in the measure. These include extensions of the Medicaid Money Follows the Person program and Spousal Impoverishment Protections program to December 11. The measure also includes $1.5 billion to conduct the 2020 Census.
