Granger on Subcommittee Funding Allocations

May 8, 2019
Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, the Full Committee met to consider the subcommittee funding allocations for fiscal year 2020. Committee Republicans rejected these allocations, and the measure was reported out of the Committee on a party line vote.

Top Appropriations Committee Republican Kay Granger (R-TX) said, "The allocations offered by the Democrats are based on topline funding levels that I do not support. 

"I also question the Democrats' priorities. The funding proposed for the Department of Homeland Security – a less than one percent increase over last year – would starve them of the resources needed to meet the humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border. Yet other bills are seeing increases as high as six to eight percent over the prior year. We owe it to the American people to look at all the priorities under our jurisdiction.  

"More work needs to be done by the House, the Senate, and the White House to find a way forward on next year's spending levels, and that is why I voted no today."
