Appropriations Heads Up

Although no specific dates or times are available as yet, ASDWA has just learned that the FY 17 Interior & EPA appropriations measures are scheduled to see action in both Chambers next week with the Full House Appropriations Committee to act on the Subcommittee bill introduced a couple of weeks ago and the Senate committing to take up its version at the Subcommittee level.  In the Senate, Democrats and Republicans agreed that the Dems would not block the spending bill if the GOP did not include riders and stayed within budget cap limitations.  ASDWA will continue to monitor these activities and keep you informed as new information develops.
