The Senate Appropriations Committee moved forward with their Agriculture Appropriations bill this week. It included funding for the following programs:
The Committee also released its topline spending by appropriations subcommittee for fiscal year 2018. In the absence of a budget resolution, the committee has been working from fiscal year 2017 enacted funding levels and their total fiscal year 2018 discretionary spending totals $1.07 trillion. The Budget Control Act cap for fiscal year 2018 is $1.065 trillion. The House Budget Resolution set fiscal year 2018 discretionary spending at $1.132 trillion.
