Congressman Rogers Votes for 2018 Temporary Federal Funding

U.S. Representative Hal Rogers is applauding the House’s approval of the fiscal year 2018 Continuing Resolution to give Congress more time to finalize the FY18 federal appropriations bills and ensure government operations continue through January 19, 2018. The temporary funding legislation includes important provisions for critical national defense programs, and extends vital funding for programs like the Children’s Health Insurance Program, Community Health centers, and the Veterans Choice Program. The House also passed a separate measure to provide emergency disaster aid for hurricane and wildfire relief efforts. Congressman Rogers said that that while continuing resolutions are never the preferred course of action, this bill is a necessary measure to continue vital government programs and services.
