In-Depth: House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey (D-NY) introduced this continuing resolution to avoid a partial government shutdown while negotiations over an omnibus FY2021 appropriations bill and coronavirus relief continue:
“The American people urgently need coronavirus relief and this short stopgap bill will allow bipartisan, bicameral negotiators to complete their work on this important issue. I look forward to swiftly passing omnibus appropriations and coronavirus relief legislation through the House as soon as possible.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told reporters:
“I think we’re very close to getting an agreement. I think two more days would allow us the time to get it done.”
Of Note: This is the third continuing resolution (CR) Congress has considered since fiscal year 2020 ended on September 30, 2020. Congress enacted a 10-week CR on September 30th that ran through December 11th, and then approved a one-week CR to extend funding through December 18th.
