Congress Adjourns for August Recess with FY2015 Appropriations Work on Hold

Posted on: August 1st, 2014 by NADO Admin

The House and Senate have adjourned for a five-week summer recess. Both bodies return on September 8. Leading up to the recess, work on the fiscal year (FY) 2015 appropriations process ceased. While the House was able to move 7 of its 12 annual appropriations bill through the House floor to passage, the Senate has not considered any appropriations legislation on the floor. Congress will likely take up a continuing resolution (CR) after returning in September in order to continue funding for federal programs into the new fiscal year, which begins October 1.
