Bill Summary

Govern Before Going Home Resolution - Prohibits the House of Representatives or Senate from adjourning for a period of more than five days (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays, except when the House or Senate is in session on such a day) during a fiscal year unless, at the time the period of adjournment begins, the House or Senate (as the case may be) has:

  • adopted a concurrent resolution on the budget for such fiscal year; and
  • approved each regular appropriation bill for such fiscal year or, to the extent that it has not approved such a bill, has approved a continuing resolution to provide funding for the entire fiscal year for the projects and activities covered by it.
