Rules Committee Hearing for HJ Res 79 – FY 2012 Continuing Resolution

Early this evening the House Rules Committee announced that it would be holding a hearing tomorrow morning for developing the rule for the consideration of HJ Res 79, the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2012. This bill would continue the current FY 2011 funding levels, with some exceptions, through November 11, 2012. This will provide some additional time for the Senate to complete their consideration of at least some of the FY 2012 spending bills (certainly including DHS) currently spending.

As expected, the CR would also extend the current CFATS authorization. Section 130 of the CR reads:

“Section 550(b) of the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2007 (6 U.S.C. 121 note) shall be applied by substituting the date specified in section 106(3) [November 18th, 2011] of this joint resolution for ‘October 4, 2011’”.
