Budget Negotiations Continue; House Appropriators Push for Agreement on FY2014 and FY2015 Spending Levels

Posted on: November 22nd, 2013 by NADO Admin

The House-Senate budget conference committee continues to work toward their December 13th deadline to reach a deal on a spending level for the remainder of fiscal year (FY) 2014. This week the Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee Hal Rogers (R-KY) and the Chairmen of the twelve House Appropriations subcommittees sent a letter to the leadership of the House and Senate Budget Committees calling on the Budget conference committee to reach an agreement on spending caps for both FY2014 and FY2015 by December 2nd to allow the appropriations process to move forward to completion before the current Continuing Resolution (CR) expires on January 15th. If an agreement is not reached, the possibility of another government shutdown or a year-long CR looms. Additionally, another round of automatic spending cuts will take effect on January 15, 2014 if no alternative to sequestration is enacted.
