Bills Introduced – 01-16-18

Yesterday, with the House and Senate back in Washington after the long Martin Luther King Holiday weekend, there were 30 bills introduced. Of these, one may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HJ Res 125 Making an extension of continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2018, and for other purposes. Rep. Frelinghuysen, Rodney P. [R-NJ-11]

A copy of HJ Res 125 is available on the House Rules Committee site and that Committee will hold a hearing on the continuing resolution (being considered as an amendment to HR 195 as amended by the Senate) this afternoon. The bill would extend the current continuing resolution (that expires Friday night) until February 16th. It includes a number of special funding provisions to make passage more palatable, including an extension of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
