Weekly WIC Policy Update

April 4, 2016

The Senate returns to Washington today after a two week recess, while the House remains in recess until next week. Senate Appropriations subcommittees have several hearings scheduled for this week to take testimony from agency directors on their FY 2017 requests. However, the Agriculture subcommittee, which sets funding for WIC, has not scheduled any further hearings as of yet.
