Budget & Appropriations – Committee Approves FY 2019 Defense and L-HHS-ED Package

On September 13, a conference committee approved an appropriations package that funds the Departments of Defense and Labor Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies (L-HHS-ED) for fiscal year (FY) 2019 that begins on October 1. Most of The Arc’s priority programs were level funded or received slight increases and controversial policy riders have been removed. The Senate is expected to vote on final passage this week, and the House during the week of September 24. Funding levels for The Arc’s priority programs can be found here.
