The latest update on the budget approval process is that the House Appropriations Subcommittee and Full Committee Bill provided for reduced NERRS funding:
$17.081 for operations
$0 for PAC
The full committee
took up the bill yesterday and there were no amendments related
to NERRS (or NOS).
NERRA will continue to make the push to members prior to the conference
committee marks. In
the meantime, any help from groups outside of the reserve to
email letters of support and thanks for program support would be helpful.
We will continue to keep you posted...
