This afternoon the Senate passed HR 3547, the newly named Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014 by a bipartisan vote of 72 to 26. The House amendment to the bill that was agreed to by the Senate today will provide for funding of the federal government until the start of the 2015 fiscal year on October 1st.
The President has until midnight Saturday to sign the bill to avoid another federal funding fiasco like we saw last fall. There have been no indications that he has even considered vetoing this bill.
Section 536 of the bill will extend the current CFATS program through October 4th.
