Appropriations Bill Tracking for Fiscal Year 2018

As Congress proceeds with its annual appropriations process, whereby Members decide on spending levels and priorities for federal agencies, the Northeast-Midwest Institute (NEMWI) continues to track regionally-relevant programs, their funding, and regional support. Throughout the process of developing the federal budget, from introduction of the President’s budget request to the Committee process and on to floor votes, NEMWI provides overviews of the bills for Congressional staff and regional stakeholders.

As Committee reports are made available, NEMWI creates fact sheets of funding levels and other provisions relevant for the region, available via links in the table below:
