Last Friday evening, President Trump signed a short-term spending bill to end the shutdown and re-open government. The “Further Additional Continuing Appropriation Act, 2019” is a continuing resolution (CR) that provides fiscal year 2019 appropriations through Feb. 15, 2019. In addition to opening the shuttered portions of government, the CR authorizes the EB-Regional Center Program to resume operations through the end of the three-week appropriation.
