NWC News Alert – Latest on the Omnibus and WRDA


NWC News Alert

December 21, 2020


Dear NWC members,


As you know from our exciting day yesterday, Congress was a hairs breathe away from moving forward with their FY2021 omnibus package. They passed a day-long continuing resolution through today to give them time to work through final details. Today, they are expected to vote on the final bill.


But, one thing they (and us) have been waiting on before moving forward—the final legislative text! Well, the text was just released this afternoon and we wanted to share it with you. NWC is currently reading and hopes to have a high-level analysis available soon.

If you have any thoughts on the legislative language, please shoot Julie Ufner, NWC President, an email.
