"Examining the management challenges facing the Department of Transportation and the Department of Housing and Urban Development helps this subcommittee make informed decisions about how we invest resources.

Ranking Member DeLauro Statement at Fiscal Year 2024 Budget Request for the Department of Health and Human Services Hearing
"People depend on these programs, which is why I must mention how deeply concerned I am over some extreme House Republican calls for massive spending cuts and even more extreme calls by Republican officials to eliminate so many of the programs that keep families healthy, safe, and prosperous. These cuts would be devastating to children, families, seniors, and veterans. We should be doing everything we can to increase access to these programs, not cutting off vital services to the people who need them."

Ranking Member Hoyer Statement at the Hearing on President Biden's Fiscal Year 2024 Budget Request and Economic Outlook
"The budget also includes robust funding for our election infrastructure, including the election assistance commission that I helped establish through the Help America Vote Act. These HAVA programs must receive the funding they need to ensure that our elections remain secure, accurate, and accessible. These provisions, like the rest of President Biden’s budget, would help set our nation up for success for generations to come. They stand in startling contrast to proposals we’ve heard recently to roll back federal appropriations to their fiscal year 2022 level."
