House Appropriations Committee Vote Postponed

07/03/2018 - The House Appropriations Committee postponed the full committee markup of the House fiscal Year 2019 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriation bill until after the July 4 congressional recess.

The full Senate Appropriations Committee voted to approve the FY19 LHHS spending bill by a 30-1 vote on June 28, which included funding for many of the Academy's priority areas outlined in recent submitted testimony.

The Academy will provide analysis of both spending bills after the House holds its hearing and will continue to advocate for a strong investment in health and nutrition programs.
