President Signs “Laddered” CR, Temporarily Averting Shutdown
On November 15, the Senate passed a continuing resolution (CR) to fund the government on a bipartisan basis, with President Biden signing the CR soon after. The House had passed the same bill the prior day, also with bipartisan support. The CR’s passage averts a government shutdown that was slated to begin on Saturday, November 18. Importantly for PHADA members, the CR is “clean,” meaning it contains neither funding cuts nor harmful policy riders.
