FY2017 Spending: Congress Plans to Extend Continue Resolution Through April

Posted on: December 2nd, 2016 by NADO Admin

House and Senate Republican leaders are moving forward with a stopgap spending measure that would extend current federal funding levels through April.  This is a month later than originally proposed, reflecting a request from the Senate for additional time.  The text of the continuing resolution is expected early next week.  Congress has abandoned plans to complete work on fiscal year (FY) 2017 appropriations bill this fall in order to give the new Congress and incoming Trump administration the final say over FY2017 spending decisions.  The current continuing resolution for FY2017 expires December 9.
