NASSP joined forces with the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) to send a letter to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House and Senate Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies (Labor-HHS) Appropriations subcommittees outlining our organizations priorities as they prepare a Labor-HHS spending bill. The Labor-HHS appropriations bill will be part of a larger bill to fund government programs that Congress must pass by January 15 in order to avoid another government shutdown. Read the letter here.
Congressional staff will be working over the next few weeks to finalize all of the appropriations bills. We are anticipating that the omnibus spending bill will be released the week of January 6.
