It is something of an understatement to say that for the time being, at least, Washington is focused on something other than funding and potential government shutdowns. In a flurry of activity, Congress agreed to a three-month continuing resolution (CR) that postponed final funding decisions for FY 2018 until December 8, raised the debt ceiling for three months, and made a down payment on hurricane relief funding for Texas.
Congress and the country are focused on providing relief to storm-damaged areas in Florida, whether there will be a tax reform proposal to consider by the end of the year, how to deal with the DACA issue and continuing tensions on the Korean peninsula. In addition, because of arcane rules, the House and Senate need to adopt budget resolutions to enable them to proceed with tax reform efforts.
