FY 2016 Short Term Continuing Resolution


Below are the key points of the anticipated Continuing Resolution:

  • Keeps the government operational until December 11, 2015.
  • Provides funding at an annual rate that conforms to the topline discretionary spending limit established by the Budget Control Act for FY 2016 - $1.017 Trillion.
  • Provides Overseas Contingency Operations funding at a rate of $74.758 billion.
  • Includes $700 million in emergency funding for wildland fire suppression.
  • Includes a small number of funding anomalies to address unique circumstances that arise during CR periods, such as:
    • Supporting claims processors for veterans disability claims at the rate necessary to address backlog
    • Maintaining launch schedule for the joint polar satellite
    • Paying ongoing rental assistance contracts in the rural housing program
    • Accommodating increased demand for 7(a) small business loans
  • Includes extensions of certain expiring authorities for the duration of the CR (except as otherwise noted)
    • Internet Tax Freedom Act
    • E-Verify
    • Federal Aviation Administration (6 months)
  • Prohibits for one year any funding for Planned Parenthood or its affiliates unless such entities certify they will not perform or fund abortions, and redirects the estimated $235 million in mandatory savings to increase funding for community health centers.
