Legislative Update: Senate, House Appropriations Committees Approve FY 2014 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Bills

June 2013

[Amended August 2013]

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) [number 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.
