Congress and the President have agreed to fund federal government agencies for six weeks past the October 1 start of the Fiscal Year 1996, avoiding a shutdown of the government for lack of a budget. This action averts what some have described as a “scheduled train wreck” between Congress and the Administration over spending for FY '96. The threat of a government-wide shutdown had been seen as the impetus for a compromise between President Clinton and Congress, but the bottleneck of pending legislation forced a continuing resolution to extend funding. The President and Congress agreed to authorize money at reduced levels for Fiscal Year 1996, until all the appropriation bills reach the President' desk.
