House Democratic leaders announced they would be holding a vote on a stopgap funding measure, known as a continuing resolution, the week of September 16. Congress will need to pass a continuing resolution or all twelve spending bills before the beginning of the new fiscal year (FY) on October 1 to avoid another government shutdown. Although the House has passed a majority of their spending bills, the Senate has yet to complete the process for any of the necessary bills, making the need for a stopgap funding measure almost inevitable. House leaders did not specify how long a continuing resolution would last, but it would likely fund the government through at least late-November.
