Granger on FY24 Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Bill

Jul 14, 2023

I want to thank Chairman Rogers for presenting the Fiscal Year 2024 Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies appropriations bill.
I also want to thank the Chairman for funding the important programs in the bill while reducing spending on lower priorities.
I am pleased to say this bill strikes a careful balance.
Specifically, this bill prioritizes spending on programs and initiatives that:

  • strengthen our nation’s ability to remain competitive around the world;
  • invest in cutting-edge research and technology, such as those authorized in the CHIPS Act;
  • support American innovators and manufacturers; and
  • protect children and our communities from drugs and crime.

The bill holds the Department of Justice accountable and improves our immigration court system.
It supports state and local law enforcement and provides critical resources to combat illegal drugs flooding our country.
I want to thank the Subcommittee Members and staff – both Majority and Minority – for their hard work on this bill.
