FY2018 Funding Update
After passing a continuing resolution late in December to keep the government running through January 19, Congressional and White House leaders met this week to try to hammer out a deal to raise budget caps for FY2018 and 2019. One of the major sticking points has been the "parity principle" which requires raising funding for defense and non-defense equally. Democratic leaders have also insisted that agreement on the Children's Health Insurance Program, community health centers, disaster aid and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program for immigrants need to be part of any plan for moving forward.
