Democrats Secure Substantial Investments in Critical Priorities; Legislation Provides $900 Billion in Urgent Coronavirus Relief

WASHINGTON — The House today passed an omnibus spending bill consisting of all 12 fiscal year 2021 appropriations bills, coronavirus relief, and authorizations.

The measure was considered as a divided question, with Divisions B, C, E, and F being agreed to on a bipartisan 327 to 85 vote and the remainder of the legislation being adopted on a bipartisan 359 to 53 vote.

“I’m incredibly honored that my final legislation as a Member of Congress will provide full-year funding for all of government and deliver urgently-needed coronavirus relief to save lives and livelihoods,” said House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita M. Lowey. “The process was not always smooth, but at the end of the day we secured funding increases for critical priorities and strong emergency relief to crush the virus and put more money in people’s pockets. Work remains, but so too does Democrats unwavering commitment to the American people.”

The more than $1.4 trillion fiscal year 2021 appropriations omnibus furthers House Democrats’ commitment to investing For The People with substantial increases to non-defense spending alongside small increases for defense-related programs.

In addition to the fiscal year 2021 appropriations bills, the spending package contains $900 billion in emergency coronavirus relief to protect the lives and livelihoods of the American people.

The spending package also includes a number of other matters outside the Appropriations Committee’s jurisdiction and negotiated by bipartisan, bicameral leadership.
