Weekly WIC Policy Update

Two Weeks Left for Congress to Reach Spending Deal

Congress must pass a spending deal by March 23 to continue government funding, and Congressional leaders are optimistic that they will reach an omnibus agreement to complete the appropriations process for the 2018 fiscal year. The House of Representatives is expected to vote on an omnibus bill this week. The Senate is likely to proceed after passage in the House, but it must begin consideration of the bill this week to avoid procedural delays that could bring about a last-minute shutdown, as Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was able to do in February. If Congress fails to reach an agreement by March 23, the government will shut down for the third time this year.
