As reported in previous Washington Insights & Highlights newsletters, President Biden signed into law a continuing resolution (CR) that would fund the federal government through December 3. To avoid a government shutdown, the House of Representatives passed another short-term CR that would fund the federal government through February 18, 2022. According to media reports, a deal was reached in the Senate that allowed for a vote on an amendment to defund President Biden’s vaccine mandate for large employers. The Senate rejected the amendment (48-50). The Senate then voted on the short-term CR to fund the government through February 18, 2022.
