WASHINGTON - Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX), Lead Republican on the House Appropriations Committee, released the following statement on Afghanistan.

Granger Remarks on Senate Amendment to H.R. 3237, Emergency Security Supplemental Appropriations Act
Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of this bill to provide funding for the heroes in our National Guard and Capitol Police, as well as the brave people of Afghanistan who supported our troops overseas.
While I am disappointed that it has taken this long to reach an agreement, the bill before us today is a strong package that deserves our support.
Thank you, Madam Speaker.
I rise today in strong opposition to H.R. 4346, the fiscal year 2022 Legislative Branch appropriations bill.
I wish I could support this important piece of legislation, but unfortunately, it has too many flaws, and it does not reflect the type of bipartisan agreement that we must have to complete the appropriations process this year.
Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
I rise today in strong opposition to H.R. 4373, the fiscal year 2022 State and Foreign Operations appropriations bill.
Thank you, Madam Speaker.
I rise today in strong opposition to H.R. 4502, a package of seven fiscal year 2022 appropriations bills that will be considered by the House this week.
I wish the circumstances were different and I could support this important piece of legislation that funds critical programs.
Thank you, Chairman McGovern and Ranking Member Cole, for allowing me to testify on H.R. 4502, a package of seven fiscal year 2022 appropriations bills.
I wish the circumstances were different and I were here speaking in favor of this important piece of legislation.
WASHINGTON – Today, the full committee met to consider the fiscal year 2022 appropriations bills for the subcommittees on Energy and Water Development and Transportation and Housing and Urban Development. The committee also considered technical changes to the subcommittee allocations, known as 302(b)s.
Madam Chair, thank you for yielding.
The revised spending allocations presented today contain only technical corrections to the initial allocations, which were adopted on a party-line vote two weeks ago.
Because there are no substantive changes from the initial allocations, I must once again oppose them.
Thank you, Madam Chair, for yielding.
First, I want to thank Chairman Price and Ranking Member Diaz-Balart for their work on this Transportation, Housing and Urban Development bill.
This bill supports key transportation infrastructure and safety programs, including highways, rail, and ports.
