FASEB Statement on Further Extension of Fiscal Year 2018 Continuing Resolution

February 06, 2018

FASEB issued a statement expressing concern about the House of Representatives' plan to pass a bill (H.J. Res. 128) that would fully fund the Department of Defense for fiscal year (FY) 2018 while leaving all other federal agencies operating under a "continuing resolution" (CR) until March 23, 2018. The CR currently funding the government expires on February 8. FASEB encourages Congress to concentrate on finalizing FY 2018 spending decisions for all agencies as soon as possible rather than singling out one funding category or agency.
