Senate Passes Short-Term Funding Bill

Last night the Senate voted to modify the continuing resolution (CR) passed by the House last week, removing additional funding for disaster relief. Because of the changes, the bill must now go back to the House for approval before the fiscal year ends on Friday. The House is in recess this week, but House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (VA) has said that the chamber would approve a one week CR by unanimous consent on Thursday. This bill would give Congress until October 4 to pass a longer CR that would fund the government until November 18.
