June 23, 2022 Press Release
The House Appropriations Committee today approved the fiscal year 2023 Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies bill on a 31 to 26 vote.
"The investments in this bill are so important. They support those who need us most by fighting hunger, safeguarding our food supply, and lifting up rural communities. I am proud of this bill and the impact I know it will have."
"We all eat the food, rely on the medicine and medical devices, and use the fibers and materials made possible by this bill. The bill invests in our rural communities as well as the institutions that develop our agricultural sector and safeguard our medicine and food are vital to our country’s well-being. And the bill provides vital safety nets for our most vulnerable populations."
The House Appropriations Committee today released its reports accompanying the fiscal year 2023 Homeland Security and Financial Services and General Government appropriations bills.
"With this State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs funding bill, we are strengthening the global public health infrastructure which is critical to combatting the spread of COVID-19. We are supporting women and girls, combatting climate change, and increasing humanitarian assistance."
"I am so proud that these investments reflect the values that we hold so dear as a nation and make the world a safer, healthier, and a more habitable place."
"This legislation also reduces gun violence with funding for Gun Violence Reduction Grants and invests in programs to prevent violence against women. With these resources, we are also working to end the opioid epidemic and confront the climate crisis. I am proud that with this bill, House Democrats are leading the way to address some of the biggest issues facing working families.”
"The Commerce, Justice, Science appropriations bill we have put forward for fiscal year 2023 will help build a safer, more prosperous, and more competitive America."
"As our Nation continues to recover from the devastation of the pandemic, rising inflation, and the impacts of crime, it is our responsibility to build safer communities and to help bolster economic development within them. This bill – building on the achievements in the 2022 government funding package – continues to reverse the decades of underinvestment that have made too many Americans feel unsafe and have pushed working families aside for far too long."
The House Appropriations Committee today released the draft fiscal year 2023 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies funding bill, which will be considered in subcommittee tomorrow.
