House Appropriations Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ) last night introduced a continuing resolution that would fund the federal government through Feb. 16 and the Children’s Health Insurance Program for six years. The bill also would delay the Affordable Care Act’s medical device tax and so-called Cadillac tax on high-cost health insurance plans for two years, and its tax on health insurance providers for one year, among other provisions. The current CR expires Friday.
