Press Release

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi today named House Democratic Members to serve on a conference committee on the Defense and Labor, HHS and Education Appropriations bills.

“Across the country, the American people are confronted with a GOP Congress and Administration that are relentlessly ransacking the health care, financial security and futures of American families,” Leader Pelosi said.  “After House Republicans chose to advance a destructive and partisan Labor, HHS and Education bill that turns its back on hard-working families, this conference will provide an opportunity to craft a strong, balanced bill that recognizes America’s strength is measured not only in military might, but in the health and well-being of America’s hard-working families.  Democrats will fight for funding that honors our duty to provide our military with the tools they need for a strong and smart national defense and meets the needs of children and families.  Our dynamic House Democratic Conferees will bring the strength of their values and wide-ranging expertise to the vital work of hammering out bipartisan bills on these critical issues.  They will work tirelessly to support our courageous men and women in uniform, and they will remain faithful to their responsibility to help build a better future for all Americans.”

The following Democratic Members will serve on the Defense and Labor, HHS and Education Bills conference:

  • Ranking Member Nita Lowey of New York
  • Congressman Pete Visclosky of Indiana
  • Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut
  • Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard of California
  • Congresswoman Betty McCollum of Minnesota
