Continuing Resolution Countdown
Washington, September 28, 2018 – Minibus + Continuing Resolution enacted into law
The President today signed an Appropriations “minibus” funding bill which includes:
- The Department of Defense (DOD),
- The Labor, Health and Human Services (LHHS),
- The Education Appropriations bills for fiscal year 2019, and
- A short-term Continuing Resolution (CR) to temporarily fund remaining government programs until December 7, 2018.
The legislation signed today also includes a short-term Continuing Resolution (CR) to keep the federal government open and operational until all the remaining Appropriations bills can be signed into law. This extension will run until December 7, 2018, and covers the areas of the federal government not covered by this minibus or prior Appropriations legislation that the President signed into law on September 21. Negotiations on the rest of the funding bills are currently ongoing.
NOTE: This is also the first time in over 20 years that Congress has passed a LHHS bill prior to the end of the fiscal year, and the first time in over 10 years it has passed a DOD bill prior to the end of the fiscal year.
Instead of one large Omnibus bill Congress decided on funding the Federal Government with smaller bills.
