Minimal Movement on the Budget & Funding Likely for a Few Weeks

Hardly a day goes by in Washington, D.C., that there isn’t a story about the federal budget and funding – and it’s good for the media but not so good for state drinking water program administrator when trying figure out funding for this year and potential funding for next year.  The likely scenario here is that Congress will figure out what to do with the current Continuing Resolution for FY 17 funding that expires on April 28 during the week of April 24-28.  It’s likely not much is going to happen between now and then and it will be a scramble during that week.  ASDWA staff will continue to stay plugged in on the ongoing budget and funding discussions and will pass on any news in a timely manner.
