Washington Update: Shutdown Averted and WIC Funding Assured as Trump Declares National Emergency

President Trump announced today that he would sign a bipartisan spending deal that will fund the nine federal departments that had gone without long-term funding since September 2018. This includes the US Department of Agriculture, which administers WIC. With this action, WIC funding is now assured through September 30, 2019. The current spending deal essentially mirrors the deal set before the President allowed a partial government shutdown in December.
