House Appropriations Committee releases CR

The House Appropriations Committee released the text of a Continuing Resolution (CR) Tuesday to extend this fiscal year’s spending levels for federal programs and prevent a government shutdown on Sept. 30, when the fiscal year ends. The CR (H.J. Res 59) would begin Oct. 1 and funds programs and services at $986.3 billion, slightly below the current, post-sequestration level until December 15. This funding rate will remain in place for the length of the CR, or until Congress approves the annual Appropriations legislation for FY 2014. H.J. Res 59 may be brought to the floor for consideration as early as Thursday. House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers released a statement on the introduction of the CR.
