6 Federal R&D Budget (FY 2015 Proposed) “[Speaker] Boehner told reporters that the House will pass a short-term continuing resolution to keep the government open sometime in September, avoiding a government shutdown that would otherwise occur on the last day of the month. The legislation would likely expire in early December, he said, punting decisions about the nation's spending to a lame-duck Congress just after the midterm election.” National Journal Daily, 7/25/14
