While the House and Senate were considering their options on HJ Res 59, two other alternative continuing resolutions were introduced. There were no other bills of potential specific interest to readers of this blog introduced yesterday. The two alternative CRs were:
HJ RES 67 Latest Title: Requiring reaffirmation of the Affordable Care Act and making continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2014, and for other purposes. Sponsor: Rep Crawford, Eric A. "Rick" (R,AR)
HJ RES 69 Latest Title: Making continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2014, and for other purposes. Sponsor: Rep Reed, Tom (R,NY)
Neither Crawford or Reed are members of the Appropriations Committee so it is extremely unlikely that either bill will get serious consideration.
Interestingly, because of the shutdown the public will not get a chance to see either of these bills published until after they become redundant because the GPO is closed down for the duration. Fortunately (a touch of sarcasm here) Congress is unaffected; their funding continues to allow them to operate.
