Our colleagues at National Journal Daily, report Republicans in Congress agreed to the $1.047 trillion stop-gap budget measure -- which you might know as the continuing resolution -- to avoid a spending battle during the lame-duck session. Here's a look at some keys aspects of the CR. National Journal subscribers can read more here.
  • The annual rate of the CR is $26.6 billion below last year's level.
  • Funding for the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Disaster Relief Fund stays flat at $6.4 billion.
  • $88.5 billion goes toward war-related funding, the amount requested by the White House.
  • New projects and programs will go unfunded.
  • There will be no new policy riders.
