RE: FEMA/Stop Gap Funding Compromise Approved by House
As expected (see our previous letter at http://www.njslom.org/letters/2011-0927-three-issues.html) the House on Thursday approved a temporary spending bill to prevent a government shutdown at the end of the week.
The legislation allows the government to function through next Tuesday, giving time for House lawmakers to return to Washington next week to vote on a six-week funding measure already approved by the Senate.
The House approved the bill by unanimous consent, a move that did not require House members to return to Washington.
