Recent Activity

January 24, 2019 Press Release
This continuing resolution would ensure that the Department of Homeland Security is open and its public servants, including Secret Service agents, transportation security officers, border patrol and customs officers, and the brave men and women of the Coast Guard, are paid for their hard work.
January 24, 2019 Press Release
Mr. Speaker, there are only two approaches to take: Either we reopen the department, and the rest of the federal government, without conditions; or we continue to use federal workers, and everyone who depends on them, as bargaining chips in funding negotiations. It seems to me the choice is straightforward.
January 22, 2019 Press Release
Democrats are bringing forward six conference reports negotiated last December when Republicans controlled the House, Senate, and the White House. If members of the Republican Party are serious about governing with us for the betterment of all Americans, then they should vote for these six conference reports and reopen the agencies covered by those bills.

House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita M. Lowey (D-NY) and Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee Chairwoman-designate Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA) today released legislation to end the Trump Shutdown and reopen the Department of Homeland Security through February 28. The legislation is expected to be considered in the House this week.
January 17, 2019 Press Release
The House today approved a Continuing Resolution to reopen all federal agencies through February 28. The House has now passed eight bills to end the Trump Shutdown in the 116th Congress.
January 16, 2019 Press Release
This Continuing Resolution would provide an additional option for President Trump and Senate Republicans to finally take yes for an answer and bring the shutdown to its long-overdue end. It would reopen government through February 28, providing time for Congress to come to a full-year agreement without further jeopardizing vital services or the pay of federal employees.
January 16, 2019 Press Release
House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita M. Lowey (D-NY) today announced the Democratic rosters for the House Appropriations Committee’s 12 subcommittees in the 116th Congress, including the Subcommittee Chairs and full Committee Vice Chair who were elected by the Committee’s Democratic Members.
January 15, 2019 Press Release
Across the country, we have watched as hurricanes have pummeled Florida and the Carolinas, wildfires have burned large swathes of the West, and typhoons have struck territories in the Pacific. In addition to the tragic loss of life, families have lost everything, businesses have been upended, and communities have been ripped apart. This legislation attempts to meet these needs with $12.14 billion in emergency spending.
January 15, 2019 Press Release
House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita M. Lowey today submitted to the House Rules Committee an amendment to House Democrats’ emergency disaster appropriations bill that would reopen all federal agencies through February 8.
January 15, 2019 Press Release
It is long past time that Senate Republicans join us to reopen the government, pay our federal employees, and then negotiate on border security and immigration policy. I hope that my colleagues across the Capitol come to their senses and end the shutdown.
