Stop Planned Parenthood Funding in Continuing Resolution
From the Daily Caller: “Two-thirds of all government spending (“mandatory spending”) automatically renews itself each year without even needing a Congressional vote. Only the remaining one-third of government – discretionary spending – goes through the annual appropriations process. If these appropriations are not enacted by the October 1st fiscal new year, the affected programs shut down – unless they are deemed “essential services” for public safety.”
Last October Congress failed to enact appropriations for this year and a continuing resolution was passed to fund the “discretionary programs” at the previous year’s levels. Today that continuing resolution ends. So, the vote must come by midnight tonight or the government will “run out of money” and shut down.
