FY2016 Appropriations Update

With Congress preparing to leave town for the August recess, the likely outcome of the FY2016 federal budget process is most likely to be a continuing resolution (CR) before the end of the current fiscal year on September 30th. CCUSA staff are monitoring the process closely and continue to meet with members of the House and Senate appropriations committees to advance the broad message of our letter to Congress concerning FY2016 spending priorities and to address specific areas of concern as budget negotiations move forward.

We welcome your feedback on spending priorities at any time, and encourage you to continue spotlighting the impact of government programs in your communities on an on-going basis. We will be asking for your action to support our messages later this summer as Congress begins to seriously consider compromise measures.
