    Legislation enacted by Congress to provide Budget Authority (BA) for specific ongoing activities in cases in which the regular Fiscal Year (FY) appropriation has not been enacted by the beginning of the FY. A CR usually specifies a designated period and maximum rate at which the agency may incur obligations based on the rate of the prior year, the President's Budget (PB) request, or an appropriation bill passed by either or both houses of the Congress. Normally, new programs cannot be started under a CR.
