Congress funds the federal government via 12 appropriations bills, many of which contain riders that dictate how funds are to be spent. Congress agreed on $1.6 trillion in discretionary spending for FY24, but the Senate wants to spend more with “emergency” measures while the House wants to cut federal spending by rescinding previously approved appropriations.
Congress avoided a government shutdown October 1, 2023 when the House enacted a last-minute bill supported by Democrats and opposed by a handful of Republican conservatives that provides funding through mid-November 2023 but does not include funds for more border security and aid for Ukraine.
