NACA joined hundreds of organizations on a letter urging Congress to oppose any FY 2018 appropriations bills which include ideological policy riders. Appropriations bills have been used before to undermine essential safeguards through “policy riders” – provisions that address extraneous policy issues, and are slipped into appropriations bills to win approval as part of must-pass funding legislation. Contentious poison pill riders are intended to advance the priorities of special interest donors and supporters and should not be included in funding bills.
