President signs Continuing Resolution, Zika funding

On September 29, President Obama signed a Continuing Resolution to fund the government through December 9. The measure allocates $1.1 billion in emergency funding to combat the spread of the Zika virus and prevents a government shutdown. This gives Congress 10 more weeks to finalize a FY 2017 budget and provides APIC members additional time to advocate for CDC infection prevention programs. Contact your Members of Congress today.
