The Federal government’s new fiscal year starts on October 1. The House of Representatives passed a resolution to continue the current budget through Dec 11, 2020, until a budget for FY2021 can be passed. This bill is now with the Senate, for passage prior to the October 1 deadline.

With the glow of National Estuaries Week still shining, NERRA is celebrating estuary heroes everywhere—including those in Congress—with this video. We are grateful to the NERRA board members, friends, volunteers, and partners for their work on behalf of estuaries and to those members of the House and the Senate who signed bi-partisan resolutions in support of National Estuaries Week. In particular, we thank Representative Larson and Senator Whitehouse and their staff for their leadership on the resolutions.

Restore America’s Estuaries/Coastal States Organization 2020 Summit attendees have an opportunity to hear from congressional appropriations committee staff members Melissa Zimmerman and Darren Benjamin, NERRA President Lisa Auermuller, and NEP Director Rachel Rouillard Oct 2 @ 5 pm in a  virtual session.  The Building Partnerships with Congress to Manage and Restore Estuaries and Coasts session will be kicked off by Estuary Caucus Co-chairs Representative Rick Larsen (WA), Representative Bill Posey (FL), Suzanne Bonamici (OR), and Brian Mast (FL).
