WASHINGTON – Top Appropriations Committee Republican Kay Granger (TX12) released the following statement after signing a Conference Report on Homeland Security Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2019.

"With only three weeks to negotiate and prevent an unnecessary government shutdown, the conference committee has developed a strong, bipartisan package.
