Weekly WIC Policy Update

Budget Caps: Two Year Deal Likely, but Divisions Remain

Congressional leaders are negotiating a two-year deal to lift spending caps set by the Budget Control Act of 2011 that would force automatic spending cuts unless Congress acts to raise them. Republicans want to allocate most of the extra funding from raising the caps to defense, while Democrats are demanding parity between any increases for defense with increases for domestic programs, including WIC. Democrats are unlikely to vote for another CR without a deal to increase the budget caps.
