"This bill provides the foundation of critical investments to combat climate change, to upgrade and strengthen our nation’s energy and water infrastructure, and to responsibly fund our nation’s nuclear deterrent while rejecting the Administration’s dangerous plan to restart nuclear explosive testing."

July 10, 2020 Statement
"House Democrats reject the Trump administration’s pandering to the fossil fuel industry at the expense of the environment and our public lands. Instead, we will promote solutions that preserve our landscapes, protect endangered species, and help prevent the worst impacts of climate change."
July 10, 2020 Statement
"Last year, House Democrats secured significant new investments in environmental protection and land conservation. For fiscal year 2021, this bill builds upon those successes to advance the priorities of American families – ensuring we have clean air and water to protect our children’s health, protecting our most special places and endangered species, and taking meaningful actions to address climate change."
July 9, 2020 Statement
"This year’s Military Construction and Veterans Affairs funding bill makes critical investments in veterans and military families, reinforces our national security infrastructure, and blocks President Trump from stealing appropriated funds from servicemembers to pay for an ineffective, nativist wall or to backfill projects he already canceled for that purpose."
July 9, 2020 Statement
"The bill before us demonstrates our commitment to our servicemembers and their families and to our Veterans."
July 9, 2020 Statement
"The coronavirus pandemic has made it abundantly clear that we must do more to address America’s food security crisis and to strengthen struggling communities that are reeling from the pandemic and ensuing recession. While the Trump administration’s budget would gut critical investments in vulnerable populations and rural communities at a time of great need and uncertainty, this fiscal year 2021 bill would reduce disparities made worse by the pandemic with strong funding and protections to help put nutritious food on people’s tables and to connect more Americans to work, school, health care and family with increased broadband access."
