Continuing Resolution to be Considered in House?


The House Majority Leaders web site notes that the House may consider “Legislation Making Further Appropriations for FY22” today. No such legislation was introduced yesterday and there is nothing on the House Rules Committee web site so this would have to be a second continuing resolution for the FY 2022 spending bill, no surprise there. At this late date this will almost certainly be a clean CR without policy riders that would unnecessarily upset most Republicans. The only real question is how long the CR will last; before Christmas, February/March or remainder of fiscal year?


And, of course (for the 116th Congress anyway), the Republicans continue their delaying tactics in the House. Seven suspensions from yesterday still require votes (including the three cyber related bills I mentioned yesterday). These bills will eventually pass with substantial bipartisan support, but the mechanics of voting slows down the House processes.
