Report: Senate to Consider 3-Month Funding Bill

BudgetThe Senate will mull a $1.02 trillion stopgap measure that adds $74.7 billion for the military’s overseas contingency operations and funds the government through Dec. 11, Defense News reported Tuesday.

Joe Gould writes that the measure works to support efforts to prevent a government shutdown and enable lawmakers to take up a long-term funding bill later this week.

The stopgap spending bill meets spending caps indicated in the Budget Control Act and removes funds for Planned Parenthood, the report said.

Gould reports that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) could then bring a continuing resolution to the Senate floor by the end of the week.
