About

The House Committee on Appropriations — comprised of 30 Democrats and 23 Republicans and organized into 12 subcommittees — is responsible for writing the laws that fund the federal government's important responsibilites. 

Led by Chairwoman Nita M. Lowey, Appropriations Democrats are fighting for investments that create jobs, grow our economy, help middle class families and people struggling to get into the middle class, and keep our country safe and secure.

Through the 12 appropriations bills that the Committee considers each year, the 30 Democrats on the House Appropriations Committee advocate for A Better Deal for working Americans by prioritizing good schools, robust job training, affordable higher education, quality health care, and better infrastructure.
