DeLauro Introduces Further Additional Extending Government Funding Act
House Appropriations Committee Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-CT-03) today introduced the short-term Further Additional Extending Government Funding Act, which continues federal government funding through March 11 to provide time to complete bipartisan, bicameral negotiations on fiscal year 2022 appropriations legislation.
“Our country needs a government funding agreement to create good-paying jobs, grow opportunity for the middle class, and protect our national security. We are close to reaching a framework government funding agreement, but we will need additional time to complete the legislation in full,” Chair DeLauro said. “This Continuing Resolution – the product of bipartisan, bicameral negotiation – extends funding through March 11 to keep government up and running while Congress completes our important work.”
The Further Additional Extending Government Funding Act continues funding at current levels through March 11 and provides $350 million in direly-needed funding to address water contamination from the Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility in Hawaii.
