Congress Passes Full-Year FY2013 Continuing Resolution

Last week, Congress passed the Full-Year Consolidated and Further Continuing Resolution Act of 2013, which funds the federal government for the remainder of the 2013 fiscal year. The new Continuing Resolution is not very different from the last one, but with the additional sequestration cuts applied March 1, energy innovation investment within the Department of Energy is down more than 5 percent since FY2012.
