Status of FY 2013 Appropriations

On April 17, 2012, the Senate Commerce, Justice, Science (CJS) Subcommittee on Appropriations marked up the FY 2013 CJS bill, which included $5,121,000 for SJI—the same level provided in FY 2012 and requested in the FY 2013 President’s Budget. The Senate Appropriations Committee approved the CJS bill on April 19, 2012. Also on April 19th, the House CJS Subcommittee marked up the bill, which included $5,121,000 for SJI. The House Appropriations Committee approved the bill on April 26, 2012. SJI greatly appreciates the continued support of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees. SJI will provide updates as the appropriations process continues to move forward.
