WASHINGTON — The House Appropriations Committee today approved the fiscal year 2023 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies bill on a 32 to 24 vote.
"I am proud of the bill, which builds on the investments we made in 2022. We know that Americans are looking for a lifeline – that pay is not keeping up with inflation, hardworking Americans live paycheck to paycheck, women are having trouble reentering the workforce because they struggle to find good childcare, and good employment and education opportunities for people, they often feel unattainable for so many. And this bill gives them the lifeline they are looking for."
The House Appropriations Committee today approved the fiscal year 2023 Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies bill on a 32 to 24 vote.

We preserve our culture and environment. And in the process, we support American workers and the middle class by creating a better, greener, and more revitalized economy."
"Last year, we made unprecedented investments to fight the climate crisis, return science as the foundation for decision-making, dedicate the highest level of federal funding to the arts and humanities ever, and continue our commitment to tribal nations. This bill continues to build on those successes."
