House Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development Advances FY2018 Spending Bill with Recommendations for Federal-State Regional Commissions

Posted on: July 7th, 2017 by NADO Admin

Last week, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development, and Related Agencies approved its fiscal year (FY) 2018 spending bill.  This bill provides $130 million for the Appalachian Regional Commission (a $22 million decrease from the FY2017 level); $15 million for the Delta Regional Authority (a $10 million decrease from the FY2017 level); $11 million for the Denali Commission (a $4 million decrease from the FY2017 level); $5 million for the Northern Border Regional Commission (a $5 million decrease from the FY2017 level); and level funding of $250,000 for the Southeast Crescent Regional Commission.  President Trump’s FY2018 budget request recommended the elimination of all federal-state regional commissions.  The next step in the process is consideration of the bill by the full House Appropriations Committee.  That mark-up has not yet been scheduled.
