Congress Set to Extend Continuing Resolution Through December 18

The House and Senate could take up legislation as soon as Wednesday that would fund government programs through December 18.

The House Rules Committee is poised to approve the rule for the continuing resolution, allowing the House to consider the bill.

 

The current continuing resolution will expire on Friday and Congress must clear an extension before then to provide additional time for lawmakers to decide how to wrap up fiscal year 2011 spending, including issues such as extending the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts and unemployment insurance benefits.
