Legislation extends government funding through December 18

WASHINGTON — The House today passed, on a bipartisan 343 to 67 vote, a continuing resolution to extend federal government funding through December 18 and keep the government open after the current stopgap funding law expires Friday.

“This continuing resolution will keep government open as we work to complete the appropriations process and deliver meaningful coronavirus relief to the American people,” said Chairwoman Lowey. “Democrats continue to negotiate in good faith to complete our important work For The People, and it is imperative that the White House and Republicans join us in this effort.”

In addition to a funding extension, the legislation includes a one-week extension of certain health care programs.
