Congress Passes Another Continuing Resolution until December 20

November 21, 2019

This afternoon, the Senate passed a continuing resolution (CR) to keep the government open past today, November 21, the deadline of the previous CR. This second CR, passed by the House on Wednesday, will keep the government open until December 20. Ideally, this will give appropriators time to agree on how to allot $1.37 trillion in discretionary spending among the 12 annual spending bills – referred to as 302 (b) allocations.
