Statement from NARC President on Continuing Resolution

President Shafer, National Association of Regional Councils (NARC), today released this statement regarding the Continuing Resolution (CR), which was approved by Congress and now awaits President Obama’s signature. The CR will fund the government through the remainder of the fiscal year ending September 30, 2013.

“Congress coming to an agreement and avoiding government shutdown by funding the remainder of FY13 is a step in the right direction. However, implementing sequestration’s devastating cuts will have serious on-the-ground impacts to programs that make our regions and communities economically viable. Now that the CR is finalized, it is imperative that sequestration is expeditiously addressed through a legislative fix.”
