Recent Activity

September 13, 2018 Press Release
"The fiscal year 2019 Energy and Water Development, Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and Legislative Branch bill is a bipartisan rejection of President Trump’s extreme budget cuts. It restores $8.1 billion in funding for programs that create jobs and strengthen our economy."
September 10, 2018 Press Release
House Democrats stood firm in negotiations over the first minibus package, securing increased funding for important national priorities like clean energy and transformational science and better health care for our veterans. House Democrats also forced Republicans to abandon extreme anti-environment riders.
September 10, 2018 Press Release
This week, the House is expected to consider the conference report on a three-bill "minibus" that includes the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies, Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies, and Legislative Branch appropriations bills.
September 10, 2018 Press Release
“Although it is not the bill Democrats would have written on our own, this minibus supports clean energy and transformational science programs, provides new resources to treat veterans suffering from the opioid epidemic, funds infrastructure improvements at VA facilities, and creates a new program to compensate House interns for their work. This minibus is also a victory for what it does not include: the extreme anti-environment riders included in the House-passed bills."
September 5, 2018 Press Release
The House version of the Military Construction-Veterans Affairs, Energy and Water, and Legislative Branch appropriations bill includes both cuts to many priorities for the American people and unacceptable poison pill riders that weaken environmental safeguards. We must do better.
July 27, 2018 Press Release
Through 12 Committee markups this year, House Appropriations Committee Democrats have offered nearly 150 amendments to stand up for our values and push back on President Trump and the Republicans’ backwards agenda. While Republicans have defeated many of these important amendments, House Democrats have succeeded in forcing important debates and putting Republicans on the record, laying down a marker for the battles that lie ahead.
June 28, 2018 Press Release

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi today named House Democrats to serve on a conference committee of the House and Senate versions of the Minibus Appropriations bill.

June 7, 2018 Press Release

Mr. Chairman, I rise in opposition to the three-bill package that Republicans are bringing to the Floor today.

June 4, 2018 Press Release
This week, the House is expected to consider a three-bill "minibus" that includes the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies, Legislative Branch, and Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies appropriations bills.
May 16, 2018 Press Release
The bill again includes several unnecessary and controversial policy riders, including a new version related to the Waters of the United States, ag exemptions from the Clean Water Act, more meddling in California water issues, prohibiting implementation of a National Ocean Policy, and new language legislating an ongoing court case. These riders make moving our bill in a bipartisan manner difficult and I strongly object to their inclusion.
