Update on Government Funding


Yesterday afternoon, congressional leaders announced that they have reached a deal in principle on government funding for FY 2020, reducing the possibility of another shutdown just a week before the current Continuing Resolution (CR) expires on December 20, 2019.

The agreement will be drafted into at least two minibus packages this weekend, with the House and Senate planning to hold floor votes next week. The House is expected to vote as early as Tuesday, followed by the Senate later in the week.    

NTEU has pushed for many funding and policy priorities in the final spending deal, and we will update you on the details and timing as more information becomes available.
