Legislative Update: House Approves Continuing Resolution Providing ARC Funding through Fiscal Year 2007

January 2007

On January 31, 2007, the U.S. House of Representatives approved legislation that funds the Appalachian Regional Commission through September 30, 2007, at roughly the fiscal year 2006 level of $64.8 million. The bill also contains a provision extending ARCís authorization until October 1, 2007. The Senate has not yet considered its version of the legislation; however, congressional leadership expects to complete work on the bill prior to the February 15 expiration of the continuing resolution currently providing funding.
