  • Senate advances another two-tiered stopgap spending bill - January 17, 2024
  • Facing a potential shutdown at the end of the week, Congress aims to push the deadlines into early March.

    The Senate on Tuesday approved in a 68-13 vote a first procedural step on a stopgap measure that will set up two March deadlines to fund the government, looking to once again avert a shutdown this week by punting on the appropriations process.

    The third continuing resolution of fiscal 2024 would again take a two-tiered approach, dividing the expiration of funding into two buckets of agencies. It would also come with more promise that it will end in a full-year funding agreement, as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., have agreed on the overall spending levels for the fiscal year. Both lawmakers, however, acknowledged appropriations would not be able to write bills to detail that spending before the first deadline set to hit this Friday and agreed to pursue another stopgap measure.
