FY09 Appropriations continues to stall due to the Economic Stimulus Package
that has been the focus of both the House and the Senate this week. However,
because the stopgap funding of the Continuing Resolution, (that extends
funding in FY2009 with FY2008 levels) is set to expire on March 6, 2009,
Congress must move quickly to pass FY09 Appropriations soon after the
stimulus package has cleared.
