House Appropriations Committee Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-CT-03) released the following statement on the forthcoming Continuing Resolution:
Agreement has been reached on a Continuing Resolution and it will be filed at 8 AM ahead of House consideration later today.
To build pressure for an omnibus, the CR includes virtually no changes to existing funding or policy (anomalies). However, Democrats prevailed in including $7 billion for Afghanistan evacuees. The end date is February 18. While I wish it were earlier, this agreement allows the appropriations process to move forward toward a final funding agreement which addresses the needs of the American people.”
