Legislative Update: Continuing Resolution Extends Government Funding through February 8

On January 22, the president signed legislation extending funding for government programs, including ARC, through February 8, 2018. 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.
