(Washington, DC) – This week, Congress approved – and the President signed into law – H.R. 244, the “Consolidated Appropriations Act,” which funds the government through September 2017 and invests an additional $25 billion in our nation's armed forces, including the largest pay raise for troops in six years. Also on the list of priorities advanced through the bill is $42.7 million in funding for the ongoing Savannah Harbor Expansion Project (SHEP), the largest increase in border security funding in a decade - $12.2 billion – and funding for the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act, which shifts school control and accountability back to states and communities. U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall (GA 07) voted in favor of the measure.

It grants much-needed flexibility for states while authorizing stability-funding for high risk pools aimed at reducing health care premiums, and it provides states for the first time the opportunity to design and build a better indigent care program for the under-served.
