“The Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies bill before us meets this moment for the families and communities we represent. For far too long the American economy has left the vulnerable, middle class, and small businesses behind.

That is why I am proud that this bill supports small businesses, including manufacturers, and creates good-paying jobs."

With our funding bills this year, we will invest in the American people: creating good-paying jobs, growing opportunity, and providing a lifeline to the middle class, working families, small businesses, and the vulnerable."
