Happy New Year from Your NRPA Public Policy Team! 
 
Although 2018 got off to a rocky start (i.e. government shutdown), our team has been re-energized this week from our day on Capitol Hill with NRPA's Board of Directors. We had several positive meetings with congressional and administrative offices that confirmed for us that we are moving in the right direction on our legislative priorities for the year. The congressional budget process may continue to astound us, but knowing that park and recreation agencies like yours continue to do positive work for local communities, no matter the state of our political environment, incentivizes us to plow full steam ahead.

For the first time since 1986, Congress passed a significant tax reform bill (House Vote 224-201, Senate Vote 51-48). What does this all mean for park and recreation agencies? Don't sweat it, we're here to help. On the blog, we break down the ways your agency could be affected by this tax reform bill. We are continuing to sift through this legislation and identify any additional threats or opportunities in this bill.

Congress passed a temporary spending agreement on Monday to end the shutdown and fund the government through February 8. Just before the New Year, we reported on the Continuing Resolution (CR) that was in place until last week (read Congress is Heading Home for the Holidays). With yet another CR now in place, a final budget resolution for FY2018 has once again been delayed.
