Washington, DC (July 18, 2006)- The full Senate will soon vote on Appropriations for the Interior and Related Agencies. This bill includes the FY 2007 budget for the US Forest Service. Senate appropriators have budgeted $27.6 million for the Urban and Community Forestry Program.
Once the Senate passes its bill, the Senate and House will form a conference committee to finalize the FY 2007 Appropriations for Interior and Related Agencies. The conference committee’s job is to come up with a joint compromise between the House and Sentate versions.
