Legislative Update: Senate, House Appropriations Committees Approve FY 2014 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Bills
On June 27, 2013, the Senate Committee on Appropriations approved its FY 2014 energy and water development appropriations bill, which provides $68.2 million for ARC's nonhighway programs. This is an increase from the Commission's FY 2013 post-sequester funding level (approximately $64.9 million) [amended August 2013 to reflect final post-sequester figure] and is roughly even with ARC's FY 2012 funding level.
The House Committee on Appropriations passed its version of the legislation, which contains $70.3 million for ARC, on June 26.
Full Senate and House action on the bills is pending.
