Stopgap funding bill looks to fund government to March

The Senate has proposed an amendment that would extend government funding to March. Congressional leaders Sunday unveiled the bipartisan plan to extend 2023 funding levels as Congress continues to work on negotiations for 2024. 

Agriculture, energy, water, and transportation funding (currently set to expire Jan. 19) would last until March 1, with the remaining spending bills (set to expire Feb. 2) extended to March 8. As part of the agreement, the National Flood Insurance Program would also be extended until March 8.

House Republicans have signaled the bill will likely be considered this week under suspension of the rules, requiring a two-thirds majority of the chamber. The bill does not include funding for several partisan priorities. 

America’s Credit Unions will continue to provide updates on the government funding situation.
