Federal Government Funded through October 1st

03/26/2024

With the enactment of the second tier of appropriations, amounting to $1.2 trillion, all federal agencies are fully funded through October 1, 2024.

 

The final bipartisan funding bill was effectively six months late and required four continuing resolutions.  The House passed the measure on Friday 22nd with considerable rancour.  The Senate passed the appropriations in a 74 to 24 vote in the early hours of Saturday morning followed by the signature of the President.

It now falls to the Speaker of the House Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) to appease his right flank and hopefully consider and pass necessary bills that have remained in abeyance during the conflict surrounding the appropriations bills.

 

The final agreement in the House represented a compromise that would normally be considered appropriate for a democratic government system.
