Congress Approves Year-Long FY 2013 Funding for SJI

On March 20, 2013, the Senate approved the Department of Defense, Military Construction and Veteran Affairs, and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 (H.R. 933). The bill provided $5,121,000 for SJI – the same level appropriated in FY 2012. On March 21st, the House approved the bill with no changes. SJI is subject to sequestration per the Budget Control Act of 2011 (P.L. 112-25), and rescissions included in the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013, which will result in a reduction of approximately 7 percent ($356,912) in FY 2013.
