House ups funding for history-related spending





On Monday, the House approved an omnibus funding package that incorporates the eleven fiscal year 2008 appropriations bills that have yet to be passed by Congress. The Democratic majority has released the breakdowns for the appropriations bills. What follows are the numbers as released by the Appropriations Committees for programs of interest to the historical and archival communities.

It is important to note that these are NOT the final appropriations numbers for these programs since the omnibus bill must pass the House and Senate and be signed by the President. The hope is that Congress will be able to finish work on the FY ‘08 budget before it adjourns for the holidays on Friday.
Here is a brief summary. A fuller analysis will follow later in the week once the bill has been passed.
