House Introduces Continuing Resolution Funding Government, Including Vital programs such as EB-5
On Nov. 18, Congressional Appropriation leadership introduced a 26-page Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund government and extend vital programs such as EB-5 through Dec. 20, 2019. Leaders hope to use the additional time to extend current operations and complete fiscal matters and other priorities before the holidays.
In addition to the extension of time, the CR allows for the extension of certain health programs and other key priorities of Congress, such as the census, military pay, highway funding, and other programs.
The House is expected to pass the CR tomorrow and then to the Senate and the president before the Nov. 21 expiration of the current CR.
