Senate Appropriations Committee Approves GPO’s FY 2019 Funding Request

Monday, June 18, 2018

Press release from the issuing company

Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee has approved the U.S. Government Publishing Office’s (GPO) full funding request for the fiscal year 2019 Legislative Branch Appropriations bill. This action matches the amount already approved by the U.S. House of Representatives. At $117 million, GPO’s request is $68,000 less compared with funding approved for FY 2018. Since 2010, GPO’s appropriations have declined by nearly 21%.

“GPO appreciates the Senate’s support as we continue to modernize our operations for Congress, Federal agencies, and the public,” said GPO Acting Deputy Director Andrew M. Sherman.

The FY 2019 request will enable GPO to:

  • meet projected requirements for congressional publishing;
  • fund the operation of the public information programs of the Superintendent of Documents, including an increase of $3 million to improve and enhance the operation of the Federal Depository Library Program; and
  • develop information technology, including cybersecurity, in systems that support the agency’s congressional publishing and public information programs operations.
