House Passes New Short-Term Budget Fix

Senate set to pass the continuing resolution later this week

The House of Representatives on Tuesday approved by a vote of 271-158, another short-term continuing resolution (CR) to fund the government until April 8. The Senate is due to take up, and likely pass, the CR later this week.

This short-term funding extension to prevent a government shutdown is a holdover while congressional negotiations continue on a long-term plan to keep the government running through the end of the fiscal year, which ends on September 30.
