For the last few weeks, Congressional leadership, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), have indicated a desire to pass a full-year omnibus appropriations bill ahead of the December 11, 2020, funding cliff rather than another short-term continuing resolution. Last week, Senate Republicans released their spending package which has helped kickstart negotiations on the full-year spending package. Following meetings between Republican leadership and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows this week, Roll Call has begun reporting that the President Trump is open to signing a full-year package. Negotiations are ongoing, and NRHA will keep members apprised of developments via NRHA Connect.
