June 14, 2023 Press Release
House Appropriations Committee Republicans today released the draft fiscal year 2024 Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies funding bill, which will be considered in subcommittee tomorrow.

June 13, 2023 Press Release
Republicans amended the bill to correct some of their recent initiatives that would harm veterans, including the immediate rescission of $2 billion for veterans medical care in the Republicans’ Default on America Act and were shamed out of their dramatic cuts to the Toxic Exposures Fund, which was created to ensure veterans of all wars exposed to Agent Orange, burn pits, and other toxic substances would be cared for in the initial mark of their 2024 funding bill. Despite these changes, the bill still falls short, and paired with the topline allocations they released late last night, Republicans are still failing our veterans. House Democrats were united in their opposition, voting unanimously against the bill.
