President Signs Third FY2018 Continuing Resolution Which Funds the Government Through January 19, 2018

Legislative Update
December 2, 2017

With the current Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 Continuing Resolution (CR) set to expire on December 22, and Congress unable to agree on a final full-year spending plan, President Trump today signed a third FY2018 CR that funds the government through January 19, which had been passed earlier in the week by both the House and Senate.

The bill is similar to the previous two CRs that have been funding the government since the start of the fiscal year on October 1, 2017.
