Last night the House Rules Committee met to formulate the rule for the consideration of HJ Res, 117, the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2013. As expected the rule is a closed rule providing for one-hour of debate and no amendments. According to the House Majority Leader’s web site, the CR will be considered today. There should be mixed bipartisan support (some opposition from both parties) for this bill and it should pass without any problem. The Senate would then probably take up the resolution next week, where it is expected to pass as well.
