Legislative Update: Continuing Resolution Extends Government Funding through December 22

On December 8, the president signed legislation (P.L. 115-90) extending funding for government programs, including ARC, through December 22. 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.
