An act to temporarily extend the public debt limit, and for other purposes.
Temporary Debt Limit Extension Act - Suspends the public debt limit for the period beginning on the date of enactment of this Act and ending on March 15, 2015. Increases the debt limit, effective March 16, 2015, to the extent that: the face amount of such obligations outstanding on the date of enactment of this Act is exceeded by the total of the face amount of public debt obligations and the face amount of obligations whose principal and interest are guaranteed by the U.S. government (except guaranteed obligations held by the Secretary of the Treasury) outstanding on March 16, 2015. Excludes an obligation under clause 2 (above) from being taken into account unless its issuance was necessary to fund a commitment incurred pursuant to law that required payment before March 16, 2015.
