Boehner Says Congress Will Act on Continuing Resolution in September

July 24, 2015 —House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) July 23 said that Congress will work on a continuing resolution (CR) when it returns to Washington after the August congressional recess.

Speaking at a press conference, Boehner said, "Well listen, the Democrats in the Senate have blocked any appropriations from coming to the Senate floor.... [I]t's pretty clear, given the number of days we're going to be here in September that we're going to have to do a CR of some sort."

The House has passed six of the 12 annual spending bills, but the Senate has been unable to consider any of the appropriations bills because of Democratic opposition to the spending limits currently in force.

Boehner said "no decision has been made about" the terms of the CR, adding Congress will "deal with it in September when we get back."
