HJ Res 117 Passes in Senate

On Friday the Senate passed HJ Res 117, the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2013, by a mostly partisan vote of 62-30. No amendments were made to the bill in the Senate so it goes to the President who will certainly sign the measure.

This CR will generally increase spending on current programs by 0.612% {§101(c)} and will continue funding of the federal government until March 27, 2013 {§106}. Section 137 provides for a separate moderate increase in funding for certain cybersecurity programs in DHS NPPD. Section 139 of the bill specifically provides for the extension of the CFATS program and there are no funding restrictions included that would affect the CFATS program.
