Nancy Ognanovich, senior congressional correspondent at Bloomberg Government, provides an update on spending negotiations, and the likelihood of a continuing resolution being passed soon.

Congress plans to vote next week on another continuing resolution to fund the government until late December. Because of Congress’s current focus on the impeachment inquiry and multiple recesses. time is running out to ensure funding by the start of the calendar year. Nancy Ognanovich, senior congressional correspondent at Bloomberg Government, says that events like this are incredibly familiar in the leadup to a shutdown.

 

“Pelosi, Schumer, McConnell agreed that they would do a CR to December 20. Whether that’ll be the last CR is an open question. Last year, that’s just about the same thing they decided then we had a shutdown and then things didn’t get wrapped up until early winter,” Ognanovich said. “Going into their recent meeting, Lowey and Shelby had been looking at two different potential different CR’s running into December and February. If the CR that goes into December 20 isn’t enough, the next one may go into the first part of February and skip over that period of time when we think that the Senate will be dealing with impeachment.”
