House expected to vote on short-term CR
Thursday - 12/16/2010, 2:20pm EST
The government is operating on a continuing resolution that expires at the end of Dec. 18.
If the omnibus passes the Senate, the measure will then have to be approved by the House. However, The Hill reported Thursday, Senate Republicans are expected to delay the vote by having clerks read every page of the 1,924-page bill which could take up to 50 hours.
Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) told Fox News, "We're trying to run out the clock. They should not be able to pass this kind of legislation in a lame-duck Congress."
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell has offered up a one-page continuing resolution that would fund the government at current levels through Feb. 18, 2011.
Federal News Radio has put together a list of the top unresolved issues affecting federal employees, including agency funding and a pay freeze. We will update this resource as more information becomes available.
