Legislative Update: Continuing Resolution Extends Government Funding through January 19

On December 22, the president signed legislation extending funding for government programs, including ARC, through January 19, 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.
