The National Budget after March 23, 2018

Hi Everyone,

March 23, 2018 was the day the Continuing Budget Resolution that goes through September 2018 was signed. The government did not shut down.  The budget was not as drastic as feared mostly because lawmakers are facing elections in 2018. I, personally, was presently surprised that not everything I care about was gutted (as promised by some). However, our values at a national level are still under attack, make no mistake about that.

For more on the Federal Budget, please check out major newspapers around the date March 23rd online. I am going to do a bit more of a deep dive in preparation for next September and will publish a blog post detailing more.

Happy Sunday,

Molly Hermes
