A CR, until December 8, 2017, was enacted today (i.e., it was passed by the House and signed by President Trump today):

It will looks like the House will consider a number of appropriations bills this week (including NASA and other CJS funding):

A budget deal has been reached:

http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/372748-senate-leaders-agree-to-two-year-budget-deal

Quote
It provides a $131 billion increase for nondefense programs — $57 billion in new funding over the next two years above the cap established by the 2011 Budget Control Act. It sets a nondefense funding cap for 2018 that is $117 billion higher than what President Trump requested in his 2018 budget request.


https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/2/7/16987122/congress-massive-budget-deal-explained

Quote
This budget caps deal would be attached to a short-term spending bill, to give lawmakers time to write the specific appropriations bills. There are reports that the agreement could include a one-year increase to the debt ceiling as well.

More details have emerged on the budget deal:

Quote
The legislation would keep the government funded for another six weeks, through March 23. That would give lawmakers enough time to write an omnibus spending bill to fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year and break the pattern of passing continuing resolutions.

http://thehill.com/homenews/house/372902-paul-ryan-says-he-has-the-votes-for-budget-deal

Quote
The accord increases defense spending by $80 billion in fiscal year 2018 and by $85 billion in fiscal year 2019, while raising nondefense spending by $63 billion and $68 billion. It suspends the debt ceiling until March of 2019, ensuring Congress won’t have to deal with the legislative headache again until after this year’s midterm elections. The Senate is expected to pass the deal on Thursday and send it to the House for final approval, hours before government funding is due to expire at midnight.

Another article by Jeff Foust on the same topic:

Table from the article:

Here’s a clip-and-save budget chart for NASA comparing the original FY18 request, House and Senate bills, and the final omnibus. (All values in millions of dollars, and the 2nd SLS launch platform is included in exploration ground systems.)

Trump tweets that he might veto:
https://mobile.twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/977166887493799936
Quote
I am considering a VETO of the Omnibus Spending Bill based on the fact that the 800,000 plus DACA recipients have been totally abandoned by the Democrats (not even mentioned in Bill) and the BORDER WALL, which is desperately needed for our National Defense, is not fully funded.

This was a few hours ago.  Government funding ends overnight tonight.

We'll see...
