Yesterday, the House passed a stopgap spending bill that keeps the government funded through March 23, the bill now moves to the Senate where lawmakers have until Feb. 8 to avoid a government shutdown.
The government shutdown ended Monday night, yet lawmakers have just three weeks to the next spending bill deadline.
Late last week, Congress passed the FY 2015 CR which will fund the government through Dec. 11 at current levels. Both chambers are now on recess until after the midterm elections in November.
The House is set to vote soon on a 10-week CR to keep the government running beyond Sept. 30, and includes language on ISIL. The Senate is expected to pass the measure quickly after the House.
