Reports: House to Vote on Continuing Resolution in Light of Donald Trump’s Presidential Win

CongressHouse lawmakers have delayed negotiations on a proposed $1 trillion omnibus budget for fiscal year 2017 and plan to vote on a stopgap measure that would run through March 31, Bloomberg reported Friday.

Erik Wasson writes House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) announced the decision, which aims to give President-elect Donald Trump a voice on the FY 2017 spending package, which contains 11 bills.

House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Kentucky) told reporters that the decision to vote on a continuing resolution was in “deference” to the incoming administration, Wasson reports.

Republicans in the lower chamber have until Dec. 9 to approve a CR that would fund federal agencies at current spending levels, according to a report by Sarah Ferris for The Hill.

Rogers said the stopgap bill contains several “anomalies” that should be addressed and that he would personally pursue the current administration’s request for supplemental war budget, the report added.
