Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), Chair of the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee, delivered the following remarks at the Subcommittee's Member Day:

Good morning. I want to welcome everyone to today’s Member Day Hearing for the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Subcommittee.

The hearing today will ensure that Members have an opportunity to provide input into the bill this Subcommittee will produce for fiscal year 2021.

We are pleased that we have six Members here to discuss a variety of Military Construction and Veterans programs.

This hearing is vital for us as Appropriators. It provides us the opportunity to zero in on the issues our colleagues are dealing with and help them address important issues through our Committee’s work. 

I look forward to today’s testimony and continuing this productive dialogue.

116th Congress
