In May, the administration of President Trump announced nominations to key positions at the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD.)
The FY17 spending bill to be voted on this week funds most HUD programs at or above FY16 levels, but below the high-water marks provided in draft versions.
Congress may seek to pass a one-week Continuing Resolution to fund the government at FY16 and avoid a government shutdown.
On April 28, most federal government departments will run out of funding and a federal government shutdown will coincide with Trump’s 100th day in office.
