MAP, FMD Funding Clears House Committee Markup

On April 19, the full House Appropriations Committee marked up and approved the FY 2017 Agriculture Appropriations bill. As approved by the committee, the bill includes full funding of $200 million for the USDA Market Access Program (MAP) and $34.5 million for the Foreign Market Development (FMD) program, as authorized by the 2014 Farm Bill.

As the FY 2017 appropriations process moves forward, USMEF members are encouraged to contact legislators in support of these important programs.
