Legislative Update – 9/28/2012

On Saturday, September 22, 2012, Congress approved a six-month Continuing Resolution (CR) that will be signed by the President this week. This CR funds the Federal government for the next six-months (until March 27, 2013) and allows the appropriations process more time until after the November elections and a new Congress is in place to finalize funding amounts. As was expected, both the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) and  Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) are maintained at their current levels in the CR, $677.3 million and $68 million respectively.

The sequestration issue has not been addressed and it is likely that passing this CR will be the last major action that Congress takes before the elections.
