Congress announced a tentative final spending deal on December 12 for fiscal year 2020 (FY20). The House plans to begin voting on the series of spending packages, known as minibuses, starting on December 17. The current stopgap funding measure, known as a continuing resolution (CR), will expire on December 20. Although congressional leaders hope to pass all twelve spending bills before this deadline, Congress may need to pass a short CR to finish all of the bills. The final deal provides $1.37 trillion to fund the government through the end of FY20, but the details of the funding levels for the various agencies are not yet public.
