Statement on Ryan-Murray Budget Agreement

We are pleased to see that the recent budget agreement ends the draconian cut that reduced Agency spending all the way down to $470.59 billion and sets spending for the coming fiscal year at a functional $513.9 billion. We believe this additional funding will ameliorate the catastrophic disruption of our ability to fulfill core duties. Nonetheless, we hope that Congress will reexamine the possibility of additional funding in the near future.
