Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate -

On March 6, the House approved H.R. 933, a bill to continue government spending after the current continuing resolution expires on March 27. The House-passed measure provides funding through September 30, the end of fiscal year 2013. The new continuing resolution now moves to the Senate, where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has said the full Senate may take up the bill as soon as March 11. Congressional leaders are working together—including “pre-conferencing” a final bill—in an effort to send the president a bill before the start of a two-week congressional recess on March 25. The bill is expected to reaffirm cuts made by sequestration but also give the administration more flexibility in the how those cuts are made.
