Recent Activity

July 17, 2018 Press Release
This week, the House is expected to consider the FY 2019 Financial Service and General Government appropriations bill as part of a two-bill minibus. This Republican bill zeroes out election security grants, rolls back Dodd-Frank consumer protections, and includes radical Republican poison pill riders.
July 17, 2018 Press Release
This week, the House is expected to consider the Fiscal Year 2019 Interior-Environment and Financial Services and General Government appropriations bills as a two-bill minibus. These bills cut environmental protection, undermine clean air and water laws, zero out election security grants, roll back consumer protections, and attack women’s health.
July 13, 2018 Press Release

In the wake of an indictment by Special Counsel Robert Mueller detailing Russian intrusion into state election systems during the 2016 election, House Appropriations Committee Ranking Member Nita Lowey (D-NY) and Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee Ranking Member Mike Quigley (D-IL) today urged House Republicans to restore funding for election security grants.

June 13, 2018 Press Release
Given its flat allocation of $23.4 billion, this bill does not adequately meet the growing needs of our small businesses, taxpayers, or middle-class consumers and investors.
June 13, 2018 Press Release
The Fiscal Year 2019 Financial Services bill is inadequate at best and negligent at worst. It is outrageous that this Republican raw deal does not include a dime for direct assistance to state governments for election security, yet last month we approved subcommittee allocations in which the largest non-defense increase will presumably pave the way to fund President Trump’s border wall and deportation force.
May 24, 2018 Press Release
I must unfortunately oppose the bill before us today. Given its flat allocation of $23.4 billion, this bill does not adequately meet the growing needs of our small businesses, taxpayers, or middle-class consumers and investors.
May 24, 2018 Press Release
Our committee should focus on the threat right in front of our noses and secure our elections system, not waste billions of dollars on one of the President’s campaign promises that will not make us safer.
March 6, 2018 Press Release
Mr. Secretary, your Fiscal Year 2019 budget request would harm taxpayers by slashing IRS funding by $100 million, and stall federal investments in economic development by eliminating all discretionary grant programs in the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund.
March 6, 2018 Press Release
Again this year, the Treasury budget request before us would slash various programs that will make us less effective, less efficient, and more vulnerable to outside risks.
July 13, 2017 Press Release
The 2018 Financial Services and General Government Appropriations bill would repeal Dodd-Frank consumer financial protections, undermine the Affordable Care Act, restrict women’s access to legal health services, meddle in the District of Columbia’s internal affairs, and diminish federal assistance to states to ensure secure elections, even in the wake of confirmed meddling by foreign actors in the 2016 election.
