On the Blog: The “Continuing Resolution”: Second Coming

The House balked at passing a temporary spending bill last week because it didn’t defund Obamacare. This week, they’ll take another run at it. The fiscal year ends September 30th.

Read about it in a post entitled: “Spending, But Not on Obamacare.”

Featured Item

This week, the House will debate a “continuing resolution” intended to fund the government while final spending decisions for fiscal year 2014 are hammered out. Fiscal year 2014 begins October 1st.

H.J. Res. 59, the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2014 was the bill scheduled for debate last week, but it was pulled before debate began. It would have funded the government through December 15th, spending a little over $7,200 per U.S. family.

There is no word on whether H.J. Res. 59 or another bill will be the vehicle for debate this week.

Costs $7,245.13 per family
