FMA Washington Report: March 8, 2024
FY2024 Funding Nears Finish Line for Several Agencies; March 22 Deadline for DOD and Others

On March 6, 2024, five months and six days after Fiscal Year 2024 began, the House of Representatives approved a bill to provide funding for the remainder of the fiscal year for several agencies. The package, approved by a vote of 339-85, would fund the Environmental Protection Agency, as well as the departments of Agriculture, Justice, Commerce, Energy, Interior, Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Veterans Affairs, and other smaller agencies. The Senate is expected to pass the bill today, and the White House backs it, to avert a partial government shutdown.

FMA joined other member organizations of the Federal-Postal Coalition on a letter to all members of Congress last week, urging swift action to prevent a devastating government shutdown. To read the letter, click here.

Lawmakers will next turn their attention to FY2024 funding for the Department of Defense and the remaining agencies whose funding is scheduled to expire on March 22. Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-NY), Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Committee, expressed optimism for that effort. “We are on target and on track to meet that deadline of March 22,” DeLauro said. “We are not going to be shutting government down.”

Of note, President Biden is scheduled to submit his Fiscal Year 2025 budget request on Monday, March 11. Fiscal Year 2025 begins on October 1, 2024.

The Federal Managers Association will keep you posted of all major developments related to agency funding.
