Without fanfare, President Obama signed a law Tuesday that will keep the federal government running through Sept. 30 and locks into place the “sequestration” budget cuts.
Mr. Obama signed the continuing resolution that was approved by Congress last week before lawmakers departed for the Easter recess.
The fiscal year ends in September.
The president still hasn’t submitted a budget for the next fiscal year, the fourth time in five years he has missed the legal deadline. The White House said Tuesday that the administration expects to submit its new budget sometime during the week of April 8.
