Federal Funding Update
Congressional leaders came to agreement late Wednesday evening on an omnibus spending bill, H.R. 1625, dubbed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018. This bill will fund the Federal government through September 30, 2018. Since October of 2017 (the start of the fiscal year), the federal government has been operating under short-term budget resolutions which left states and localities unsure about what their 2018 federal aid levels would be.
