Congress Passes Continuing Resolution Funding the Government through December 20

Earlier today, Congress passed a short-term continuing resolution (CR) funding the federal government through December 20, 2019. Not only does the CR prevent a government shutdown, it also extends the EB-5 Program’s authorization. The CR now awaits President Trump’s signature.

The CR is welcome news for the EB-5 Industry as it looks to continue to provide vital economic development for communities across the country. It also ensures additional time for IIUSA and its industry partners to continue to advocate for long-term legislative reform and reauthorization of the EB-5 Regional Center Program.
