President signs full-year Continuing Resolution for FY13 into law

President Obama signed the “Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013” (H.R. 933) into law providing funding for the government for the remainder of the 2013 Fiscal Year. The legislation, as passed by the House and Senate, specifies funding levels for some, but not all, global health programs at the State Department and United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and calls for a 0.1% rescission to “security” appropriations, which includes funding at these two agencies.  It also states that sequestration, if in effect, will continue to apply to each discretionary account. The CR provides for increased funding for the Global Fund, over FY 2012 levels (matching the President’s budget request), but decreased funding for bilateral HIV.  It increases other global health funding at USAID. After the sequester, however, overall funding levels are below FY 2012.
