Statement on Signing the Continuing Appropriations Bill

October 28, 1991

Today I have signed into law H.J. Res. 360, making further continuing appropriations for fiscal year 1992.

Providing for the operation of the Government through Continuing Resolutions is an undesirable practice. However, a Second Continuing Resolution for FY 1992 is necessary at this time in order to keep certain activities of the Government functioning while the Congress completes the appropriations process.

I commend the Congress for presenting me with a simple, straightforward extension of funding that is not burdened with unrelated provisions. I also urge the Congress to complete the ordinary appropriations process by November 14, which is the date this Resolution expires except for activities covered by the Foreign Operations appropriations bill.

George Bush

Note: H.J. Res. 360, approved October 28, was assigned Public Law No. 102 - 145.
