FMA STATEMENT ON SENATE PASSAGE OF CONTINUING RESOLUTION - November 21, 2019
Alexandria, VA - On November 21, the U.S. Senate approved a Continuing Resolution (CR) providing government funding through December 20, 2019. The final vote was 74-20. Federal Managers Association (FMA) National President Renee Johnson made the following statement in response to its passage:
"At the risk of sounding like a broken record, FMA is again relieved that Congress averted yet another government shutdown. As I said in September, a CR is preferable to a lapse in funding. However, we remain deeply dismayed about the ongoing over-reliance on short-term CRs to fund the government.
