House OKs Seven-Week Stopgap Spending Measure

Jeff Brody

House lawmakers voted 301-123 Thursday to pass a continuing resolution that would fund government operations through Nov. 21, Federal News Network reported. The seven-week stopgap funding bill seeks to prevent a government shutdown by the end of fiscal year 2019 and provide lawmakers enough time to negotiate full-year appropriations measures.

The bill includes $48 million in additional funds for the Office of Personnel Management and authorizes OPM to redirect approximately $29.7M from trust funds to support its operations. The Senate has yet to decide on a single appropriations measure and is expected to pass a stopgap funding bill next week, according to the report.
