Granger Remarks at FY24 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill Full Committee Markup

Jul 18, 2023

First, I want to thank Chairman Cole for his work on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development bill.

This bill is another example of the real progress we are making to reduce overall spending while funding our highest priorities.

The bill before us today refocuses spending on programs that support affordable housing and safe, effective transportation systems.

Instead of giving the Administration more grant funding to spend, this bill gets us back to funding core missions.

This bill responsibly funds critical transportation infrastructure to ensure our roads, railways, and air traffic control systems are safe and reliable.

The housing programs in this bill provide support for working families, the elderly, the disabled, and our veterans.

I want to close by thanking the Members and staff on both sides of the aisle for their hard work.

This is a very good bill, and I look forward to supporting it.
