"September 2012: The House (329 Aye / 91 No) and Senate (62 to 30) agree on a joint Continuing Resolution (H. J. RES. 117) to keep funding government for the next six months, until March 27, 2013. The bill is now waiting for the President’s signature. Continuing resolutions have been more and more common in recent times, with a particularly long one at the tail of FY11.
