Press Release

WASHINGTON — House Appropriations Chairwoman Nita M. Lowey (D-NY) released the following statement after the Senate passed a package of four appropriations bills:

“While I am pleased the Senate has finally passed a package of appropriations bills, we face a pressing deadline of November 21 and are still far behind in completing an orderly appropriations process.

“The critical next step is to complete negotiations on subcommittee allocations, allowing our subcommittee chairs to conference individual bills. To reach agreement on allocations, Senate Republicans must drop their insistence on funding a wasteful wall at the expense of critical domestic programs.”
