On Thursday, the House passed a short-term continuing resolution (CR) that would extend government funding from September 30th until November 21st.  The CR is a stopgap spending measure that temporarily funds the federal government until Congress enacts a long-term appropriations measure that would fund the government through the remainder of Fiscal Year 2020. 

The Senate is expected to pass the short-term CR by the end of next week.  Assuming President Trump signs the bill, the CR would grant Congress two additional months to negotiate appropriations for the remainder of the fiscal year.
