Proposed CR

House Appropriations Committee Republicans have put forward a continuing resolution (CR) that would keep the government running after September 30 when the current federal fiscal year ends. As I read it, and these things are difficult to read and comprehend, the CR would continue Social Security and most other agencies at the same spending rate as in the current fiscal year less 1.409%. However, there would be the threat that the eventual appropriation would be less -- if there ever is a real appropriation passed. I do not see any contentious riders in the proposed CR but maybe I don't know what to look for.
