NH&RA Recommends Members Join Letter Urging Congress to Lift Spending Caps for FY- 2020

Nondefense discretionary (NDD) United is leading a letter urging Congress to end the Budget Control Act of 2011 sequester spending caps. The spending caps have been avoided for several years by bipartisan budget deals, but would return for Fiscal Year 2020 absent congressional action. If Congress fails to reach a new budget agreement in the coming year, overall NDD funding would be cut by 12 percent (adjusting for inflation) compared to fiscal 2019 levels. NH&RA signed the letter and encourages our members to consider signing as well. The deadline to sign the letter is Feb. 15.
