FY96 Federal Budget Impasse Continues

March 15, 1996

Clinton is expected to sign an emergency spending bill later today that will keep the government in operation through next Friday, March 22. Without the bill, parts of the government would have shut down for the third time this fiscal year.

Almost halfway through federal FY 1996, nine government departments are operating on temporary spending authority. Agencies that are affected include the Department of Commerce, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), NASA, and the National Science Foundation.

Meanwhile, the Administration is preparing to release more details on its proposed FY 1997 spending plan next Tuesday.  Watch for more details either in FYI messages or the Weekly Digest next week.
