Press Release

House Appropriations Committee Ranking Member Rosa DeLauro (D-CT-03) released the following statement on President Biden’s budget:

“People are struggling with the high cost of living while big corporations profit at their expense. President Biden’s 2025 budget offers a blueprint to lower the cost of living, create higher paying jobs, battle climate change, protect women’s rights, honor our veterans, and protect our national security. The budget proposes critical investments that help keep communities safe and offers a plan to crack down on fraud and close tax loopholes—rewarding work, not wealth.

“By proposing historic investments in child care, lowering drug prices and health care costs, increasing access to affordable housing, and helping people access higher paying jobs, President Biden is focused on helping the middle class and working Americans.

“I look forward to further reviewing this budget in the coming weeks. We know we can work together to invest in the programs and services that matter most to people—we are doing it right now on the remaining six 2024 bills. I hope that we do not repeat the disorder of this past year, and instead, work together to build bipartisan support to pass funding bills on time that move our country forward.”
