Short Term CR


The President has signed the short-term continuing resolution (CR) passed by Congress last week that extends government funding deadlines until Friday, March 8, and March 22. It is anticipated that legislative text for the Agriculture-FDA, Energy-Water, Military Construction-VA, Transportation-HUD, Interior-Environment, and Commerce-Justice-Science appropriations bills will be released in the coming days. While congressional leaders have reached an agreement on these funding bills, more work is needed on the remaining bills--Includng SEC. Although a shutdown did not occur last week, we must continue to be engaged to ensure Congress provides agencies with the funding necessary to meet their missions.
