Congress has passed a Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the government through February 18, 2022. It is unclear at this moment if the FY22 budget will eventually pass, or if there will be a year-long continuing resolution. Either way, the House and Senate have both published their proposed budgets for the FY22 proposed budget. Click HERE for a summary of each of these bills, along with a chart of actual funding and language. Since the two legislative bodies have not reconciled their differences for a FY22 budget, these numbers are still considered “proposed.” As always, if you should have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the CFSO. If any of this information, particularly the language, is of concern to your organization or membership, please let us know immediately.
