Jim Martin Table: One-Week CR Averts Shutdown
Jim Martin Table
UPDATED: In order to avoid a government sutdown after midnight on April 8, 2011, a one-week continuing resolution (CR) was passed and signed by the president shortly after the full FY 2011 spending agreement was reached. This CR will allow lawmakers time to pass the FY 2011 spending bill by April 15. The Jim Martin Table has been updated to reflect the FY 2011 funding levels in the new CR. Funding cuts were made to Capital Assistance for High Speed Rail Corridors and Intercity Passenger Rail Service, Mass Transit Capital Investment Grants, and the Public Housing Operating Fund.
UPDATED: On March 18, 2011, the president signed a three-week continuing resolution (CR) (H. J. Res. 48). The law cuts $6 billion in non-security discretionary spending for FY 2011, but does not contain any additional cuts to programs in the Jim Martin Table.
On March 4, 2011, the Senate Appropriations Committee released the text of a proposed CR, which would fund the federal government through the final seven months of FY 2011. These funding levels are reflected in the FY 2011 Senate column.
