Washington Update: House Unveils FY 2020 Agriculture Appropriations Bill

This morning, the House Appropriations Committee released the text for its FY 2020 Agriculture Appropriations bill, which governs WIC funding.  The bill includes in total $155.3 billion in funding for agriculture and nutrition programs, which is a $3.2 billion increase above FY 2019 funding. Under the bill, WIC would be funded at $6 billion – a $75 million decrease from FY 2019 enacted levels.  The House Bill would also rescind $800 million in unspent funds.

 

The WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor Program has increased funding by $10 million, bringing to a total of $70 million. The House Bill officially blocks the USDA from relocating the Economic Research Service (ERS), and will also prohibit USDA from moving ERS outside of USDA’s research realm.

 

Tomorrow, the Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee will assemble to consider the bill and advance it to the full House Appropriations Committee. The Senate is expected to release a bill before the August recess.

 

The Appropriations process is not fully complete until Congress and the White House come to an agreement on the overall budget numbers.  NWA will keep Its members updated as the process discloses.
