PARTIAL FEDERAL SHUTDOWN SHOULDN’T AFFECT STATE REVOLVING FUND PROJECTS

 

Congress recessed without passing a Continuing Resolution to fund the government beyond Dec. 21, thereby causing a partial government shutdown. Entering into the third week of the partial federal government shutdown, the lapse in appropriations affects 25 percent of the Federal government, including funding for the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Jus­tice, Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Treasury, State, and Home­land Security, as well as the Food and Drug Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the federal judiciary, and other related government programs.

 

This includes the Interior (SRF funding) and Transportation Appropriations Bills which are currently in conference. It does not include the Energy and Water Appropriations Bill (Corps of Engineers) which was signed into law on Sept. 21.  It appears that EPA began furloughing most of its workers on or around Dec. 29th. Since most of the day to day work under the clean-water and drinking-water State Revolving Funds (SRFs) takes place at the State level, individual projects are unlikely to be delayed due to this partial shutdown. Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) loans, adminis­tered by the EPA, are likely to see delays and any new WIFIA loans are on hold until the EPA gets its FY 2019 appropriations.

 

As it relates to appropriations bills, the Senate version contains higher appropriations for CWSRF and WIFIA than the House version. Specifically, the House bill contains lower numbers ($1.34 billion for the CWSRF and $900 million for the SDWSRF) than the Senate despite the FY19 raised budget caps. The Senate has the same numbers as for FY18, which are $1.694 billion for the CWSRF and $1.16 billion for the SDWSRF. The House provides $75 million for WIFIA and the Senate $63 million.
