From the Editor

Anne Wujcik, EditorThe new federal fiscal year starts on Oct 1. That means Congress has to do something about the FY 2015 budget. No one wants to see a government shutdown in an election year. On Tuesday, Hal Rogers, Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, introduced a short-term Continuing Resolution that would fund federal programs and services at the FY 2104 spending rate of $1.02 trillion until December 11, 2014. The bill was crafted to win support - there are no controversial riders or significant changes to existing federal policy - and was expected to pass in both the House and Senate. There are no changed to anything affected the Department of Education and its budget, so it will be business as usual for the next several months.
A vote was expected on Thursday, but the process is paused right now while Congress decides how to deal with the President's request for funding to support the effort to defeat the Islamic State militants. Congress will get this CR passed. The lessons of the last government shut down are still raw. It's likely that another CR would be passed before the December expiration date, leaving any final appropriations legislation for the new Congress to deal with in 2015.
