In February, NIST proposed drastic cuts to its FY2019 budget, including shutdown of time-and-frequency stations WWV, WWVB and WWVH.
This has raised concerns on social media, echoed by the ARRL.

However, the U.S. Congress, which appropriates all funds for the Federal budget, has so far turned a deaf ear to the proposal. Though it is early in the annual budget process, both the House and Senate seem inclined to increase NIST's funding for cybersecurity, limit NIST's big construction budget to one year, and otherwise make only minor changes in the agency's funding.
