Another Continuing Resolution

The House is preparing to pass another short term continuing resolution, H. J. Res 105 [Note: Corrected typo on Resolution Number 9:19 pm EST]. This rule recognizes that that the Senate and House will almost certainly not complete action on an FY 2011 budget before midnight tomorrow and will provide for funding of the federal government at the current levels until midnight Tuesday, December 21, 2010. As with the two previous CR’s this resolution would extend the CFATS authorization until the same date.

Republicans in the House are providing pro-forma opposition to this resolution, but it will ultimately pass in the House and Senate this afternoon. The form of funding past the new time limit has yet to be decided; it could (but is unlikely to) be the previously described Omnibus Appropriations Bill, Senate concurrence with the House version of HR 3082, or possibly a longer version of this type of resolution continuing current funding until some time in February.
