House to Consider Appropriations Bills Next Week
WASHINGTON – In advance of Floor consideration, the House Appropriations Committee released summaries of six Appropriations bills expected to be considered in the House next week.
The six bills are Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies; Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies; Energy and Water Development, and Related Agencies; Financial Services and General Government; Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies; and Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies.
“Democrats in Congress have been fighting to secure transformative federal investments that help fight inflation, lower the cost of living, create jobs, and support working families,” Appropriations Committee Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-CT-03) said. “Instead of catering to the biggest corporations and billionaires that despite record profits continue to raise their prices, we are bringing to the Floor government funding bills that help the middle class, working families, small businesses, and the vulnerable who work hard. We are committed to combatting climate change, bolstering mental health services, supporting our Veterans, and building safer communities with less crime and violence and more security.”
Summaries of the six bills to be considered are linked below. Bill text and Committee reports are available here.
