Abstract:

Defense budget experts began discussing the likelihood of a continuing resolution CR to start FY2017 early in the second session of the 114th Congress. As the start of fiscal year 2017 FY2017 approaches, congressional consideration of a CR to fund the federal government through the opening months of the fiscal year is widely anticipated. This report provides a basic discussion of interim CRs and highlights some specific issues for the Department of Defense DOD under a CR. It also provides a brief look at selected FY2017 defense programs that could be affected by a CR.
