Congress Approves Continuing Resolution

With the current fiscal year set to expire on September 30, Congress has yet to send any of the 13 FY2002 appropriations bills to the President. As a result, Congress approved a continuing resolution (H. J. Res. 65), which will fund all federal agencies and programs at their FY2001 levels until October 16. The House passed the resolution on September 24 by a vote of 392-0. The Senate approved it by unanimous consent on September 25.

While appropriators made progress this week, several mark-ups of FY2002 spending bills were postponed. The House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education postponed its mark-up for the second week in a row. The House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense also postponed its mark-up. Additionally, the Senate Appropriations Committee did not consider its version of the FY2002 District of Columbia spending bill.
