FY13 Budget - UPDATE

8/31/12

Just before the August recess, House and Senate leaders, with support from the White House, reached an agreement on a six-month Continuing Resolution (CR) that would delay FY13 appropriations decisions until early next year. Policymakers will vote on the CR when they return from recess in September.

Although both the House and Senate Appropriations Committees have approved appropriations bills for the FY13 International Budget, reconciling the $4 billion (7.7%) difference between the House and Senate levels will be delayed until early 2013.
