Weekly Updates

Status

Date:

On Thursday, September 30th, Congress passed a stopgap spending measure known as a continuing resolution or CR. Thus, avoiding a government shutdown just hours before a midnight shutdown.

The Senate voted 65-35 for the funding bill to keep the government running past the end of a fiscal year. The bill essentially maintains the previous years’ funding levels. The House then followed by approving the bill 254-175.

The CR is now heading to the Oval Office for President Joe Biden’s approval and signature. Which will ensure the circumvent of a government shutdown.

Additionally, the CR would provide around $6.3 billion in emergency funding to aid the resettlement of Afghans who were evacuated after the Taliban took over their country.

“The department must continue operations necessary for the safety of human life or the protection of property, including operations in support of other federal agencies related to individuals evacuated from Afghanistan,” Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks stated last week.

The bill also consists of a $28.6 billion fund towards disaster aid, which details $565 million for the Navy and $330 million for the Air Force to repair facilities ravaged by recent natural disasters.
