Government shutdown averted with spending through April
from Defense News
President Obama signed a temporary spending bill that keeps the government open and funded through April 28 and includes the Pentagon’s highest procurement priorities. Senators voted 63-36 to pass the 70-page continuing resolution that was written by Republican leaders and released by the House Appropriations Committee on Dec. 6. Save for specifically named anomalies, a continuing resolution denies the Defense Department authority to start new programs, increase production rates, or initiate multiyear procurement.
