On September 30th, the U.S. Senate passed H.R.8337, Continuing Appropriations Act 2021, a short-term funding bill that provides $1.4 trillion in continuing FY2021 appropriations for Federal agencies through December 11, 2020. This bill also extends the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s authority to issue and extend nationwide child nutrition waivers until September 20, 2021.
