MEP Funding Set--Let the Battle Begin

MEP Funding Set--Let the Battle Begin

Tuesday, May 31, 2005
 
The House Appropriations State, Science, Justice, Commerce, and related Agencies Subcommittee approved funding of $106 million for the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) program in fiscal year 2006. The $106 million mark matches last year’s House-provided level and is $59 million more than the President’s budget request. Similar to last year, securing funding for the MEP program is shaping up to be yet another battle. Though this approval is a significant gain, it marks only the first step in a long appropriations process. The full House Appropriations Committee will consider the measure on June 7.
