President Donald Trump has signed a Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the federal government through November 21.

The Senate passed the CR by a 82-15 vote on September 26. The House first passed the measure by a 301-123 vote on September 19, just one day after it was introduced in the chamber.

Both chambers return from recess on October 15 to continue working on FY2020 appropriations bills.

The House has passed all 12 FY2020 appropriations bills via two minibuses. Ten of the 12 appropriations bills have been introduced or passed in Senate committees, including appropriations for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but the full chamber has yet to hold a vote on any individual appropriations bills.
