Legislative Update: President Signs Legislation Extending Government Funding through December 8

September 2017

On September 8, President Donald Trump signed into law a continuing resolution (H.R.601–Continuing Appropriations Act, 2018 and Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Requirements Act, 2017) that funds the operations of government programs, including ARC, through December 8. The bill continues the Commission’s funding at the FY 2017 annual level of $152 million through that date, minus a small across-the-board reduction. ARC programs and activities funded through the legislation are the same as those funded through the agency’s FY 2017 appropriation.
