Congress is running out of time to fund the government for fiscal year 2022, as the current continuing resolution expires Dec. 3. That deadline approaches as Congress also works through big ticket items like the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) bill and the Build Back Better Act.

  • Jessica Klement, staff vice president for policy and programs at NARFE, said there is currently disagreement about the length of the stopgap and the topline numbers to move forward with fiscal 2022 funding bills.
  • Klement said if Congress passes the continuing resolution Monday, federal agencies would have more certainty about the rest of next week, but if it is passed Dec. 2, agencies have to stop what they’re doing and prepare for a possible shutdown.
  • She said the NDAA is historically bipartisan and almost always passes but that it is expected to take all of next week in the Senate.
