President Trump today signed a continuing resolution funding the federal government at current levels through Dec. 22, preventing a government shutdown tonight when the current CR expires. Approved by the House and Senate last night, the stop-gap measure also will allow the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to redistribute Children’s Health Insurance Program emergency shortfall funding through December to any state that exhausts its original share of the funding. While CHIP is authorized through Oct. 1, 2019, legislative action is needed to reauthorize funding, which expired Sept. 30.
