On 3/6/09, President Obama signed a short term continuing resolution (P.L. 111-6) that will provide funding through Wednesday, March 11, for programs and agencies normally covered by the nine regular FY 2009 appropriations bills that have not been enacted.

The continuing resolution also extends two immigration related programs -- the EB-5 regional center program and Basic Pilot (E-Verify) program-- through March 11. It is also intended to provide time for the Senate to complete action on the omnibus bill by early next week.

The continuing resolution was passed by both the House of Representative and the Senate on 3/6/09.
