DeLauro Statement on Continuing Resolution
House Appropriations Committee Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-CT-03) released the following statement on the forthcoming Continuing Resolution:
"Agreement has been reached on a Continuing Resolution and it will be filed at 8 AM this morning ahead of House consideration later today.
"To build pressure for an omnibus, the CR includes virtually no changes to existing funding or policy (anomalies). However, Democrats prevailed in including $7 billion for Afghanistan evacuees. The end date is February 18. While I wish it were earlier, this agreement allows the appropriations process to move forward toward a final funding agreement which addresses the needs of the American people.”
