Congress Adjourns for Christmas Without Plan to Avoid Fiscal Cliff

The House adjourned for Christmas on Thursday evening after it became clear that Speaker John Boehner (R – Ohio) did not have the support of his caucus for the deal to avoid the fiscal cliff.  The Senate is expected to do the same today.  At this point, cities should assume that all options are on the table and continue sending information on how their cities benefit from tax-free municipal bond and discretionary programs such as CDBG, HOME, and COPS/JAG.
