Budget Agreement Sets Stage for Fall Funding Bills
Thursday, August 15, 2019

Section: August Associate Newsletter

The Senate sent a bipartisan agreement lifting federal budget caps for FY 2020 and 2021 to President Trump for his signature at the end of July. The measure, which also suspends the debt ceiling through summer 2021, will prevent significant cuts to discretionary spending, including OAA and other aging programs.
Now the House and Senate must agree on individual spending bills before the current fiscal year ends next month. The time is right for advocacy! We need you to get loud this month to ensure that lawmakers understand how important it is to increase funding for aging programs.
