Two More Spending Bills Cleared by Senate Subcommittees

Earlier today, two Senate subcommittees cleared for consideration by the full Appropriations Committee later this week two FY2019 spending bills of great interest to the University of Washington.

The Interior Appropriations Subcommittee approved its bill, which funds, among other agencies and programs, the U.S. Geological Service, the EPA, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.  The Commerce-Justice-Science Subcommittee adopted its measure, which provides funding for NSF, NASA, and NOAA, as well as other programs and agencies.

The full Appropriations Committee is scheduled to take up the two bills on Thursday.

The House versions of the bills have already been approved by the Appropriations Committee in that chamber.
