Bipartisan Continuing Resolution Heads to President

Hello Everyone,

The Bipartisan Continuing Resolution (CR) passes the Senate and is headed to President Biden for his signature. The CR funds the government for 45-days to Nov.17, 2023. Once signed, the CR avoids a government shutdown and allows NASA and the rest of the federal government to continue our important work for the American people without interruption. 

See you on Monday!

Take care,

Jonas Dino

AFEU President
