On March 26, 2013, President Obama signed into law H.R. 933, a continuing resolution that averts a government shutdown by funding the government through the remainder of fiscal year 2013 (through September 30, 2013). The funding bill is subject to the sequestration order triggered by the Budget Control Act, although funding was increased for a limited number of HHS programs (including funding for community health centers and certain National Institutes of Health activities). The funding bill keeps in place the 2% Medicare provider cuts triggered under the Budget Control Act’s sequestration provisions. It also authorizes the Food and Drug Administration to continue collecting industry user fees to fund agency operations.
