Federal Government funded until December 22, 2017
WASHINGTON—Avoiding a government shutdown, Congress passed and the president signed a continuing resolution (H.J. Res. 123) that keeps the federal government funded until Friday, December 22, 2017.
Although this extension was signed into law, there are some doubts that Congress can pass appropriation bills within that timeframe. If that is the case, Congress will need to pass another extension.
