Between funding for disaster relief, Ukraine aid, cuts to DOJ funds, energy and climate, controversial policy riders, and more, all eyes are on the House and Senate Appropriations committees in this tumultuous political climate. These potential appropriations decisions impact agencies, industries, businesses, and legislators at the local, state, and federal levels. 

Critical decisions will be made this summer with the House and Senate on a collision course dealing with the consequences of the recent debt deal and a time crunch as they sprint to the September 30 deadline for the end of the fiscal year.

Watch our recorded webinar where CQ and Roll Call’s leading budget and appropriations editorial team lay out the current state of play. The reporters discuss potential appropriations decisions, what they could mean for your organization, and how to stay on top of the appropriations cycle.
