Congress Agrees on Short-Term Funding Measure, Government Resumes Operations

Vol. 18:02

After failing to reach an agreement last week, spurring a shutdown of the federal government, congressional leaders were able to pass legislation today extending federal funding until February 8. In return for voting in support of the bill, Democrats received an assurance from Republican leadership that a vote on immigration legislation would be held in the next few weeks.

With passage of the funding legislation, the National Endowment for the Arts will continue to be funded at its current level of $150 million, while Congress negotiates a longer-term bill. As those discussions continue, NASAA will continue to update you regarding any relevant information.
