Legislative Update: Senate Committee Approves ARC Funding Bill; House Subcommittee to Hold Hearing on ARC Reauthorization

June 2006

On June 29, 2006, the Senate Committee on Appropriations approved its version of the fiscal year 2007 energy and water development appropriations bill, which contains ARCís nonhighway funding. The Senate bill provides $65.5 million for ARC, slightly more than the $64.8 million requested by President Bush, and contains no earmarks. Full Senate action on the measure is expected in July. The House Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings, and Emergency Management has scheduled a hearing on ARCís reauthorization for July 12.
