Congress Wants Short-Term Funding To Keep Agencies Open Until Dec. 22

Executive Summary

Leaders in Congress said they hope to pass a short-term, two-week 2018 "continuing resolution" by Dec. 8 to fund US FDA and other federal agencies until Dec. 22. Industry lobbyists also hope to squeeze device tax repeal language into a final budget measure this month, and medical researchers are asking Congress to lift the budget cap for more National Institutes of Health funding.
