Chairman Quigley Statement at Full Committee Markup of Fiscal Year 2023 Financial Services and General Government Funding Bill
“The bill includes $13.6 billion for the IRS, an increase of $1 billion above fiscal year 2022 and continues restoring the IRS from draconian cuts this agency has suffered for over almost a decade. This investment will support more effective and efficient enforcement activities that address taxpayers in all tax brackets. This funding will also support better customer service by reducing wait times and increasing assistance to people trying to pay their taxes."
Chair DeLauro Statement at Full Committee Markup of Fiscal Year 2023 Homeland Security Funding Bill
"I reject the false dichotomy that we must leave our values at the door as we look to protect our nation and strengthen our security. DHS plays a critical role in keeping our nation safe and we must support and strengthen these efforts while respecting the dignity of those who reach our borders and ensuring they receive due process under the law."
