House to Consider Short-Term CR

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Aug. 22 that the House would consider a short-term continuing resolution that maintains mandated sequestration spending cuts when lawmakers return to work on Sept. 9.  Although the length of the CR is uncertain, it is expected to keep the government running for at least a couple of months after Sept. 30 and the end of the current fiscal year. There was no response from House Democratic leadership to the Boehner proposal because reportedly no detailed discussion has yet occurred on a short-term CR with the sequestration cuts intact. To date no FY’14 spending bills have been signed into law.
