Budget Brief 17-13
August 23, 2017

The House appropriations committee approved its fiscal year (FY) 2018 interior and environment appropriations bill on July 18, 2017. In addition to interior and environment, the bill also covers related agencies that oversee state grants, including the Forest Service, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The House bill has since been incorporated into an eight-bill spending package for consideration by the full House after the August recess. The Senate has not yet released its version of the bill. This brief highlights funding levels and provisions of interest to states in the House bill.
