Good morning, everyone. The Subcommittee will come to order.
This morning we will markup the Fiscal Year 2024 Financial Services and General Government appropriations bill.
First, I want to thank Chairman Fleischmann for his work on this bill.
It delivers responsible appropriations in support of a stronger national defense, economy, and energy sector.
As the former chair of the Defense Subcommittee, I know firsthand what it takes to craft this bill.
I want to thank Chairman Calvert for his hard work.

First, I want to thank the Subcommittee Chairman for his work on the Legislative Branch appropriations bill.
This bill is a great example of what needs to be done to reduce overall spending while funding our highest priorities.
I want to start by saying the work we did last week shows how we are able to reduce spending where we can and prioritize funding for our core responsibilities.
That includes our national defense, veterans, and the bill before us: homeland security.
