Academy Responds to FY23 Omnibus Bill

Provisions included in the fiscal year 2023 omnibus, released by the 117th U.S. Congress, support health care and key nutrition security efforts.

December 22, 2022 – The Academy commends the provisions included in the fiscal year 2023 omnibus, released this week by the 117th U.S. Congress, that support health care and key nutrition security efforts, but was deeply disappointed that Congress did not fully prevent cuts to Medicare payment rates and that more child nutrition priorities were not addressed in the bill.
A win for equity and nutrition security, the Senate’s bill included two Academy priorities: the Providing Urgent Maternal Protections for Nursing Mothers Act and the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act Amendment. These provisions will positively impact the lives of pregnant and lactating workers by ensuring more flexibilities during their workday.
