Senate Poised To Vote On Funding Bill

top story photo With the Oct. 1 beginning of the new federal fiscal year quickly approaching, the Senate this week is expected to approve a one-month funding bill that will keep the federal government operating through the end of October.

The temporary funding provisions have been included as part of the annual funding bill — H.R. 2918 — for legislative branch operations. The House passed the measure last week.

Passage of the temporary funding bill is necessary since Congress has failed to complete work on most annual spending bills providing funding for the next fiscal year.

Lawmakers will use the extra time to try to complete action on the pending fiscal year 2010 appropriations bills, including the DOT/FAA funding bill and the DHS/TSA funding bill. Negotiations on both of those bills are ongoing.
