Tonight, by a vote of 245-182, the House approved it’s version of the 5th Continuing Resolution (CR), funding government operations and extending government programs, such as EB-5, until March 23.  The bill now proceeds to the Senate for further consideration.

As of this writing, it is expected that the Senate will continue overall budget negotiations and vote when consensus is reached.  It is further expected that Congress will reach consensus and pass a CR prior to the expiration of the current CR (Feb. 8), thereby avoiding any interruptions of government operations and programs.
