LSC receives $25 million increase for fiscal year 2018 in omnibus appropriations legislation signed by the president
ABA President Hilarie Bass commended Congress for passing an omnibus fiscal year 2018 spending bill this month that includes $410 million for the Legal Services Corporation (LSC) − a $25 million increase over the program’s fiscal year 2017 level of $385 million. “The ABA is encouraged that Congress sees the importance of LSC to the lives of their constituents,” Bass said in a statement issued on March 23, the day President Trump signed the legislation, P.L. 115-141 (H.R. 1625).
