House Passes Further Additional Extending Government Funding Act
The House today passed on a bipartisan 272 to 162 vote, H.R. 6617, the Further Additional Extending Government Funding Act. The legislation continues government funding through March 11, providing time to complete bipartisan, bicameral negotiations on fiscal year 2022 appropriations.
“This Continuing Resolution is a product of bipartisan, bicameral negotiation to keep the government up and running while Congress finishes important work for the American people,” Chair DeLauro said. “We are very close to an agreement and I am eager to move this process forward. I have every expectation that we can finalize a framework in short order and then work together to fill in the details and enact an omnibus.”
The Further Additional Extending Government Funding Act continues funding at current levels and provides $350 million in direly-needed funding to address water contamination from the Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility in Hawaii.
