Trump OKs 10-Week Gov’t Funding Extension

President Donald Trump on early Thursday signed a continuing resolution to fund the operations at federal agencies through Dec. 11 at current spending levels, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

The short-term measure was designed to head off a government shutdown at the start of fiscal 2021 and cleared by the White House almost one hour after the midnight deadline passed as Trump came back from a Minnesota campaign event.

Federal News Network reported the CR includes a provision for extended contractor payment protections under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act and additional funds for the Department of Veterans Affairs’ electronic health records system modernization project.

Other provisions include modified fee policies for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services as well as restrictions against federal agency furloughs and personnel reductions.

The Senate voted 84-10 Wednesday evening to pass the temporary funding legislation, eight days after the House cleared the stopgap measure via a 359-57 vote.
