After negotiations between key House and Senate congressional members, agreement was reached on a compromise package, H.R. 4661, the United States Fire Administration, AFG, and SAFER Program Reauthorization Act of 2017. The bill includes a reauthorization of the USFA and keeps all major components of S. 829, passed earlier by the Senate, with the one exception that a sunset provision was added through 2024.
H.R. 4661 maintains the basic structure and authorization levels under current law, makes the necessary technical corrections earlier agreed to and provides a six year reauthorization through FY 2023, with an extra year before the sunset provision applies (2024).
