First, I want to thank Chairman Womack for his work on the Fiscal Year 2024 Financial Services bill.
As I have said before, to fully fund our national defense, veterans, and border security, other unnecessary spending must be reduced.
It is an honor to serve as Chairman of the Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee. I want to thank my friend—Chairwoman Kay Granger—for giving me this opportunity. Thank you, also, to Ranking Member DeLauro for her commitment to the work of this committee.
I want to thank Chairman Simpson for presenting the Fiscal Year 2024 Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies bill. I appreciate what he has done to take meaningful steps to reduce spending on lower priority programs and direct funding where it is needed most.
WASHINGTON - Today, the House Appropriations Committee released the Fiscal Year 2024 bill for the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Subcommittee. The bill will be considered tomorrow, July 13th at 5:00 p.m. The markup will be live-streamed and can be found on the Committee’s website.
WASHINGTON – Today, the Full Committee met to consider the Fiscal Year 2024 bill for the State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Subcommittee. The measure was approved by the Committee with a vote of 32 to 27.
The Subcommittee will come to order.
I want to welcome everyone to the Subcommittee Markup of the Fiscal Year 2024 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations bill.
As the Committee continues marking up Fiscal Year 2024 appropriations bills, 18 advocacy groups, led by Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America and Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, expressed their support for Committee Republicans’ work to protect pro-life provisions in annual funding bills and prevent taxpayer dollars from being used for abortion.
Thank you very much, Madam Chairwoman.
I am pleased to present the fiscal year 2024 Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs appropriations bill to the full committee for consideration and for approval.
As we continue our work on the Fiscal Year 2024 bills, I want to remind everyone of the situation we find ourselves in.
During the last Congress, trillions of dollars were spent outside of the appropriations process.
I want to thank Chairman Cole for presenting the Fiscal Year 2024 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies bill. I appreciate the work he has done on this Subcommittee.
This bill is another example of the real progress we are making to reduce overall spending while funding our highest priorities.
