Transportation Appropriations

BILL

The President's budget request for FY 2017 includes funds for the Department of Transportation to support designated civil elements of the Air Force GPS program, along with civil GPS augmentations and related activities.

In a change from prior years, DOT requested civil funding for the GPS program through the Office of the Secretary instead of through the FAA. Also, the request does not include funds for the Nationwide Differential GPS (NDGPS) program in FY 2017.
