WASHINGTON – Today, the Full Committee met to consider the Fiscal Year 2024 bill for the Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee. The measure was approved by the Committee with a vote of 34 to 26.
It is an honor to serve as Chairman of the Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee. I want to thank my friend—Chairwoman Kay Granger—for giving me this opportunity. Thank you, also, to Ranking Member DeLauro for her commitment to the work of this committee.
As the Committee continues marking up Fiscal Year 2024 appropriations bills, 18 advocacy groups, led by Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America and Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, expressed their support for Committee Republicans’ work to protect pro-life provisions in annual funding bills and prevent taxpayer dollars from being used for abortion.
As we continue to move through markups, it is important to remember that this is not a normal funding year. Trillions of dollars were spent outside of the annual appropriations process during the last Congress, and we must re-evaluate our spending priorities.
