Congress Set to Pass 6-Month Continuing Resolution

House and Senate leaders today reached a deal to pass a 6-month continuing resolution (CR) to fund the federal government through next spring.  Details of the agreement have not yet been made public, but the CR will reportedly fund federal agencies at current spending levels.  This is more consistent with what the Senate has advocated but billions higher than the House included in its budget earlier this year.  With both chambers of Congress scheduled to soon depart for the summer recess, a vote on the agreement will likely be held in September before the end of the fiscal year.
