On the Blog: The Coming “Continuing Resolution”

Congress won’t finish passing annual spending bills by the beginning of the 2014 fiscal year on October 1st. So it’s going to pass a temporary spending measure. As it always seems to do.

Read about it in a post entitled: “The FY 2014 Spending Plan.”

Featured Item

Congress returns from its summer break this week.

The Senate will debate S.J. Res. 21, a joint resolution “to authorize the limited and specified use of the United States Armed Forces against Syria.”

The bill was introduced by Sen. Robert Menéndez (D-NJ), who is the chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.

There is no cost estimate for S.J. Res. 21 yet.
