Legislative Update: House Appropriations Committee Approves FY 2015 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Bill

June 2014

On June 18, 2014, the U.S. House Committee on Appropriations approved its fiscal year (FY) 2015 energy and water development appropriations bill, which provides $80.317 million for ARC's nonhighway programs. This amount is level with ARC's FY 2014 funding and includes $10 million to continue a program of high-speed broadband deployment in economically distressed counties in Central Appalachia that have been most negatively impacted by the downturn in the coal industry. Full House consideration of the bill is expected in the coming weeks.
