Thank you, Chairwoman Granger.
I would like to start by saying thank you to our Ranking Member, Mr. Espaillat. His cooperation and patience as we have moved through the process this year is greatly appreciated.
First, I want to thank the Subcommittee Chairman for his work on the Legislative Branch appropriations bill.
This bill is a great example of what needs to be done to reduce overall spending while funding our highest priorities.
I want to start by saying the work we did last week shows how we are able to reduce spending where we can and prioritize funding for our core responsibilities.
That includes our national defense, veterans, and the bill before us: homeland security.
