We're STILL in a continuing resolution

I forgot to post this case you're wondering why funds are short, we're still in a CR until December 11th.

We begin fiscal year (FY) 2015 under a continuing resolution (CR) that funds the government until Dec. 11.  A CR is short term legislation passed by Congress and signed by the President that ensures our government has the resources necessary to continue normal government operations without disruption.

We anticipate no near term impacts to Navy funding for personnel.  Same goes for operations and maintenance, research and development and infrastructure associated with this CR. However, until an appropriations bill is passed, uncertainty still exists. Having an approved appropriations bill would provide greater certainty and enable us to better fund the priorities of maintaining warfighting capability, procurement of new hardware, fleet readiness and Sailor training.
