Congress Approves Short-Term CR, Appropriations Negotiations Continue

December 8, 2017
From: Isaac Brown, Legislative Counsel

With the deadline for federal funding set to expire today, the House and Senate last night reached an agreement on a short-term continuing resolution that keeps the government operating at current levels until December 22. As a result, the National Endowment for the Arts will continue to be funded at its existing level of $150 million.

Congress now has an additional two weeks to try to reach an agreement on a longer-term spending package. Congress can choose to pass another continuing resolution should such an agreement prove elusive.

NASAA will continue to monitor this situation and keep you apprised of any developments.
