On Tuesday (11/14), House lawmakers passed Speaker Mike Johnson's stopgap funding bill, a crucial step to avert a government shutdown. The Continuing Resolution now moves to the Senate. The Senate is expected to expedite the process and send the bill to President Joe Biden's desk by Friday night, aiming to prevent a government shutdown.
Key features of Johnson's CR include funding part of the government, covering the Agriculture, Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Veterans Affairs departments, through January 19. The Defense Department and other remaining parts of the government would receive funding through February 2.
As we navigate these developments, we will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep the membership informed about any potential impacts on our community.
