The continuing resolution (CR) passed by Congress affects every federal agency’s ability to fund new initiatives. For the Pentagon, the CR will stall new-start programs as well as production increases.

  • Todd Harrison, director of defense budget analysis and the Aerospace Security Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said there are not many workarounds to CRs, as Congress intentionally writes them to prevent new starts it has not had the chance to approve or reject.
  • Harrison said short-term CRs that last one to three months are not generally too disruptive but those that go over three months are more of a problem.
  • The Defense Department will be watching closely as the Dec. 3 deadline approaches and it faces the difficulty of money being slowly allocated, said Harrison.
