Appropriations Process Marches On In House

As scheduled, three different subcommittees approved their respective FY2020 appropriations bills earlier today.  No full committee markup date has been for the three measures– the Defense, Energy and Water Development, and Interior bills. Detailed reports for the bills have not yet been released.

The full Appropriations Committee is slated to take up the State-Foreign Operations bill tomorrow.

On Friday, the Commerce-Justice-Science Subcommittee is scheduled to take up its FY2020 measure, which funds, among other agencies, several of great interest to UW, such as the National Science Foundation, NOAA, and NASA.
