On September 14, the House Rules Committee filed a continuing resolution (CR) to fund the government after the 2011 Fiscal Year expires on September 30th. The CR will run until November 18, 2011 and funds the government at a level of $1.043 trillion, as established by the Budget Control Act (the debt ceiling agreement). This spending level is about $7 billion – or 1.4% – less than FY2011 levels. The House and Senate will vote on the bill next week.
The statement from the House Appropriations Committee and a summary of the bill can be found here.
