NCAI Update on Budget

Here. An excerpt:

House and Senate negotiators released a $1.012 trillion FY 2014 Omnibus spending bill (HR 3547) on January 13, 2014 that provides directives for all 12 appropriations bills, including the Interior-Environment bill, which provides funding for the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Indian Health Service. The Senate cleared a three-day continuing resolution (H J Res 106) today to keep the government open through January 18. Throughout the last year, tribes have urged policy-makers to undo sequester reductions and avoid cutting even more deeply from key domestic investments, which include the solemn duty to fund the trust responsibility. The Murray-Ryan budget agreement reached in December (PL 113-67) partially replaces sequestration.
