Continuing Resolution Delayed

Continuing Resolution Delayed

A vote on the continuing resolution to fund the government has been postponed, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced Wednesday on the House floor.

The House had been scheduled to vote on the CR Thursday but a last minute request Tuesday evening from President Obama to House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers to include language in the CR authorizing the U.S. to arm Syrian rebels to combat ISIS put those plans in flux.

Wednesday afternoon McCarthy announced that CR will be delayed until early next week. 

President Obama is scheduled to address the nation Wednesday night about his plans to combat ISIS.
