On Sept. 9, the House Appropriations Committee introduced a continuing resolution (CR) that would fund federal government operations through Dec. 11, 2014. As currently written, full funding is included for the USDA Market Access Program (MAP) and Foreign Market Development (FMD) program.
The House Rules Committee was scheduled to consider the CR the following day, so that it could come before the full House on Sept. 11. But the Rules Committee delayed its consideration of the CR until further notice, so it will not come before the full House until at least next week. USMEF will provide further updates as more details become available.
