The first deadline on the national budget front will come up this Friday, the start of Fiscal Year 2011. None of the FY 2011 appropriation bills have passed Congress. We are expecting to see the first Continuing Resolution pass Congress this week. This Continuing Resolution will keep all federal programs funded at current levels as the new fiscal year begins.

DPC- is reporting that some Democrats are expected to try to add a few additional provisions to the CR. All Republicans are voicing strong opposition to any add-ons to the CR.
