FY 2022 Funding to be Delayed Until March 11
Congress has yet to enact final fiscal year (FY) 2022 funding legislation almost five months into the fiscal year. The federal government has been operating under a continuing resolution (CR) since October 1, 2021, which is set to expire this Friday, February 18. Last week, House and Senate leaders announced they had come to agreement on a framework that would allow lawmakers to complete work on the overdue annual spending bills. A new stopgap funding measure was passed by the House last week giving lawmakers until March 11 to complete their work. The Senate is seeking to pass the extension this week but is currently facing partisan blocks from Republicans seeking action related to COVID-19 vaccine mandates. The Senate will be working this week to avoid a government shutdown come Friday.
