Political Rancor Holds Up Government Appropriations

Unable to come to any agreement on funding levels for most major federal government departments in the Senate, Congress is preparing to pass another continuing resolution to keep federal government’s doors open through December 15, 2009. The current continuing resolution expires October 31. The resolution will probably be attached to one of the appropriations bills expected to come out of conference committees this week for floor votes in both houses. The most likely vehicle for the continuing resolution appears to be the conference report on the Interior and Environment Department appropriations for FY 2010.
