On September 30th, Congress passed a continuing resolution (CR, H.R. 3081) to fund most federal programs at FY2010 levels through December 3rd. Prior to Congress recessing for the mid-term elections, work on appropriations bills was well underway. Committee reports on all except the Interior and Environment bill have been published by the Senate, and House committee reports on Military/Veterans and Transportation/HUD bills have been issued. Congress returned to session of obtaining concurrence and passage of all bills prior to expiration of the December 3rd resolution.
