Weekly WIC Policy Update

Appropriations Process Moves Forward
The House and Senate appropriations committees are moving forward with consideration of appropriations bills. Last week, the House took up its first “minibus” package of three appropriations bills on the floor, which passed, despite objections of Democratic leadership, who have raised concerns about the uneven distribution of resources across bills. The bill was originally anticipated to include agriculture alongside energy and water, but instead includes the military construction and VA, energy and water, and legislative branch bills. It is unclear what the next package of bills will include, and when it might be taken up, though both leadership in chambers have expressed interest in advancing the appropriations process rapidly this summer, to hopefully avoid the need for continuing resolutions and shutdown battles during election season. You can read NWA’s analyses of the House and Senate agriculture appropriations bills, both of which have passed out of committee.
