McKinney-Vento Funding Increased 9%

"On January 13, 2014, House and Senate Appropriation Committee Chairs Rep. Harold Rogers (R-KY) and Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) unveiled an omnibus funding package including fiscal year (FY) 2014 funding for all federal programs and agencies," writes Kate Kelly of the Monarch Housing Blog.

"The bill, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014, was negotiated by Rep. Rogers and Sen. Mikulski working within the $1.012 trillion discretionary spending cap and guidelines set by Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) and Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) in the Bipartisan Budget Act of December 2013. The bill repeals the Murray-Ryan provision to cut cost of living adjustments for disabled military retirees and survivors."

"The omnibus appropriations bill is expected to pass through the House and Senate and be signed into law by this Saturday’s deadline."
