June 7, 2007-SETDA reports

Today, the House Appropriations Subcommittee marked-up the Appropriations bill and recommended level funding for EETT at $272 million for FY08. Although we would have liked to see more in this mark-up, this is the first time in several years that this Subcommittee did not give EETT a zero. Additionally, several programs were cut during the mark-up, so the fact that EETT was funded is a positive step as we look at reauthorization and a improved program with strong Committee support.

Special thanks to those of you who took the time this morning to send an e-mail to CT's member on the Appropriations Committee, Rosa DeLauro.
