Friday, January 19

Both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives have passed a continuing resolution to continue funding the federal government before the previous measure expired today. President Joe Biden will sign it today.

The majority and minority leaders of both chambers of Congress met with President Joe Biden on Wednesday to facilitate negotiations.

 “This CR will give Congress time to continue working on the appropriations process to fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said. “We hope that the House will take up this bill before the Friday deadline with bipartisan support.”

Speaker of the House Mike Johnson had come to an agreement with Senator Schumer earlier this month regarding federal spending.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the leaders in Congress as they seek to settle the appropriations for the remainder of the 2024 fiscal year.
  • For members in the House of Representatives as they pursue their priorities for government funding.
  • For the president and his administration as they promote and defend federal programs and projects.
