Third CR Extends FY21 Funding Until March 11

The Senate passed another short-term funding bill to head off a government shutdown. The third continuing resolution (CR) will keep the government funded at FY21 levels for three more weeks through March 11, 2022. The House passed this measure last week.

Congressional leaders in both parties say they are optimistic that this CR will be the last patch required before they can enact an FY22 omnibus spending package to fund government operations through September 2022.
