Weekly WIC Policy Update

Thanksgiving Recess this Week

Both chambers of Congress are on recess this week and will return to Washington, DC next week.

Tax Reform Bill Passes House, Fate Uncertain in Senate

Last Thursday, the House of Representatives passed its tax reform bill by a vote of 227-205. 13 Republican representatives voted against the proposal, in addition to the entire Democratic caucus. Senate Republicans introduced their own competing tax reform bill two weeks ago. The Senate proposal contains several key differences from the recently passed House bill, including the elimination of the individual mandate under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which would result in 13 million people losing health coverage by 2027. Both proposals significantly decrease federal revenues and add to the federal budget deficit, which can impact the funding for programs that serve low-income families, including WIC.

The NWA Leadership Academy (NWA LA) Certificate Program is a customized leadership program designed to 1) assist WIC organizations in developing leadership skills and attributes for selected new leaders, and 2) update the skills of current leaders. Additionally, the NWA LA will enable WIC organizations to clarify, communicate, and execute their vision, mission, goals and strategic initiatives. WIC personnel completing the NWA LA will possess the leadership skills and qualities necessary to think and act strategically, demonstrate critical-thinking skills, and manage results-oriented teams.
