House Passes Short-Term Government Funding Bill
Your League was pleased to see passage this afternoon in the House of a short-term funding bill that would avert a government shutdown Saturday. The Senate must still pass the measure and the president must sign it.
The threat of a government shutdown was a key topic of discussion during our Legislative Receptions this summer and during Hike The Hill events. We also sent letters to every member of the Virginia Congressional Delegation, asking that they work to avoid a shutdown.
The bill passed today in the House would fund some government departments until mid-January and the rest through early February.
