Congress "Beat the Clock" - Again

Press Release

The House and Senate "beat the clock" again Tuesday and passed a "continuing resolution" (C-R) that will keep the federal government operating until March. Without this action, the federal government's agencies would have run out of funding at midnight Wednesday.

The C-R freezes spending for most government programs and does not include money to enact the President's new health-care overhaul. Senate Majority Leader Reid last week sought $1 billion to expand federal agencies to cope with health-care demands as part of a proposed $1.1 trillion "omnibus" spending bill.

That measure died in the Senate in the face of bipartisan opposition.
