Statement on Second Fiscal Year 2018 Continuing Resolution

December 19, 2017

FASEB issued a statement expressing concern about the House of Representatives' plan to pass a bill (H J Res 124) that would fully fund the Department of Defense (DoD) for fiscal year (FY) 2018 while leaving all other federal agencies operating under a "continuing resolution" (CR) until January 19, 2018. The CR currently funding the government expires on December 22. FASEB encourages Congress to concentrate on finalizing FY 2018 spending decisions for all agencies as soon as possible rather than singling out funding for one department.
