White House Asks Congress To Include COVID-19 Fixes In Stopgap Funding Measure

  • September 03, 2020

CQ Roll Call (9/2, Krawzak) reports “the White House is asking Congress to include half a dozen pandemic-related fixes in the next stopgap funding measure if they are not put into any future COVID-19 relief legislation first.” In an “‘anomalies’ document obtained by CQ Roll Call, the Office of Management and Budget on Wednesday requested dozens more adjustments in spending in a continuing resolution that would extend fiscal 2020 spending levels into the next fiscal year that begins Oct. 1.” The office’s “request would cover adjustments in appropriations laws funding agriculture programs, defense, homeland security and other federal programs needed through the middle or end of December.”
