From Guy Land, Chief of Staff, Office of the Federal Co-Chair: Yesterday the Senate approved legislation that would continue the operations of government, including ARC, through December 8.  This continuing resolution was part of a larger package that included disaster assistance and raising the debt ceiling.  Agencies will receive funding through December 8 at the annual rate provided in the FY17 appropriations bill.  That means that ARC will be funded at an annual rate of $152 million (including POWER and the special programs for broadband, infrastructure, and workforce and industrial site development) through December 8.  The House is slated to consider the measure this afternoon.
