  • Fig. 5.3. Number of Days Spent under Stopgap Budgeting, 1979–2012. (Source: Congressional Research Service 2016, calculated by the author. The number of days spent under a CR in a given congress is calculated based on the fiscal year, and so it may be greater than the number of days in two calendar years [each two-year congress includes all or part of three fiscal years].)
