AIBS Signs Letter Urging Congress to Robustly Fund Non-defense Discretionary Programs

AIBS was among 1,106 local, state, and national organizations that sent a letter calling on Congress to reject arbitrary funding levels for non-defense discretionary appropriations, and instead fully appropriate the necessary funds to keep pace with rising costs and keep poison pill policy riders out of the fiscal year (FY) 2025 spending package.

“Vital domestic and international appropriations are a small part of the federal budget—less than one-sixth—yet they fund a wide range of important services and investments that keep America strong now and in the future,” the letter argued. “Cutting funding from the FY 2024 levels appropriated just three months ago will do little to reduce the national debt and federal deficit but will greatly jeopardize American competitiveness, security, economic strength, and services on which families and individuals rely.”
