Lowey Statement on House Passage of Homeland Security Appropriations Bill
Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-NY), Ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee, today issued the following statement on House passage of the 2015 Homeland Security Appropriations Act:
“I am pleased the House has finally passed the 2015 Homeland Security Appropriations Act, providing critical agencies the resources they need to protect our borders, ports, aviation system, and communities.
“I am hopeful that this experience will make the most extreme elements in Congress think twice about attempting to hold critical funding hostage to enact divisive and ideological riders. The Appropriations process is too important for political games.”
