Here's the scoop on what's happening this week in Congress
With only four days remaining in the fiscal year, the Senate voted to approve the House-passed continuing resolution (CR). This will allow the federal government to remain open through November 21 by operating at FY19 funding levels. It will also provide Congress additional time to complete their FY20 appropriations bills, including determining the funding amount for STD prevention at CDC. The CR bill now awaits the President’s signature.
Today, September 27, members of the House and Senate will head home for a two-week recess. They will return to the District of Columbia on October 15, six weeks before the continuing resolution expires.
