White House Expected to Sign Short Term Renewal by Sept. 30 with Funding for SDPI through November 21

The Senate cleared the bill today and it now heads to the President for a signature.

  • Today, the Senate cleared the stopgap government funding bill and it now awaits the President’s signature. The bill is a Continuing Resolution (CR) that will keep the government open beyond September 30, when it is set to expire, through November 21. The CR that moved forward in the Senate today and the House version include funding for the Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI) and other public health extenders through November 21, 2019.
  • The bill will keep the government operating at current levels giving Congress five legislative weeks to negotiate the Fiscal Year 2020 budget and departmental appropriations.
  • The President is expected to sign the bill before the funding expires on September 30 and will avert a government shutdown.
