FY18 Omnibus Appropriations Bill — What’s In It?

On March 23, 2018, President Trump signed a final omnibus appropriations bill for fiscal year 2018 (FY18) which included many wildlife conservation priorities.

This funding bill will fund the government until September 30, 2018. In the meanwhile, work is already underway on fiscal year 2019 bill.
