September 16, 2014 Press Release
While it was my sincere hope that we could have completed action on all twelve Appropriations bills before the end of the fiscal year, I understand Chairman Rogers desire to quickly pass this CR and prevent another disastrous government shutdown.
July 14, 2014 Press Release

 I am saddened to have to rise in opposition to this legislation today. As a long-time appropriator, I remember the days when we were always able to come together to determine the funding levels for our government in a bipartisan manner and with little partisan warfare. Unfortunately, this bill is not a product of those times.

June 25, 2014 Press Release

I’d like to thank Chairman Crenshaw and Ranking Member Serrano for their work on this bill, and the bipartisan spirit in which they work. 

June 25, 2014 Press Release

Thank you, Chairman Rogers.

Let me begin by thanking Chairman Crenshaw for his efforts to conduct this subcommittee in a fair and bipartisan manner.  We do not always agree on everything, but you are always willing to listen to our side, and you have made efforts to accommodate our side's priorities.

April 29, 2014 Press Release

Thank you Chairman Crenshaw. I’d like to join you in welcoming Secretary Lew before the subcommittee for the second time.  You lead a Department with a variety of missions important to our economy, our government, and our nation as a whole. 

March 4, 2014 Press Release

Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-NY), Ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee, today issued the following statement on President Obama’s FY 2015 budget request:

February 26, 2014 Press Release

Thank you Mr. Chairman.  I would also like to welcome new Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen for his first hearing before the subcommittee.  I thank you for your service to our nation, and for undertaking this endeavor at a very challenging time for the IRS.

January 15, 2014 Press Release

2014 Committee mark:         $17.0 billion

2014 Omnibus:                       $21.85 billion

·         $11.9 billion for the Department of the Treasury, which is $301 million less than the 2013 enacted level.

July 17, 2013 Press Release
Punitive and draconian cuts combined with and extraneous riders have resulted in an unacceptable bill. If this bill makes it to the floor, the American people will see what would happen to our financial regulators, tax enforcers, and, sadly, the rights of women in America, if the House Majority has their way.
