Update Sept. 12
Consideration of the Continuing Resolution (CR) in the U.S. House of Representatives has been postponed until next week due to disagreements over funding for the new health care law.
Later this week, the U.S. House of Representatives will consider a "Continuing Resolution" (CR) to provide funding for Federal agencies once the new fiscal year (FY14) begins on October 1.
The CR is necessary because Congress has completed action on regular appropriations bills for FY14.
The CR, H.J. Res. 59, provides funding at the current year, FY 2013, level. See Sections 101 and 106 in particular, which provide funding until December 15, or until a regular appropriations bill is enacted.
Current programs will be funded at current levels. New programs, or those which are slated for increases in regular FY14 appropriations bills, will not be funded until a regular appropriations bill is enacted into law.
The CR assumes continuation of sequestration.
Here is more information from House Appropriations Committee Chairman Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY).
We hope this update is helpful.
