Congress Looks Toward Potential Continuing Resolution for Remainder of 2017

In the meantime, appropriators on both sides of the aisle have expressed interest in a budget deal that would raise the spending caps set by the Budget Control Act, allowing for higher funding levels in the event of a FY 18 omnibus spending package.
