Recent Activity

January 25, 2019 Press Release
“After Congress passes the legislation and President Trump signs it, I look forward to working with my colleagues across the aisle and across the Capitol in conference negotiations to craft a funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security that provides smart, effective solutions for border security while staying true to our values as Americans.”
January 23, 2019 Press Release
The House today approved, 234-180, a new bipartisan package to reopen the government.

It includes $1.6 billion for border security-related initiatives.
January 23, 2019 Press Release
Just this morning, President Trump’s chief economic adviser warned that the shutdown could lead to zero economic growth this quarter. The solution is simple: reopen the government, pay our federal employees, and then negotiate border security and immigration policy proposals that can command bipartisan support.
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.
January 17, 2019 Press Release
House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita M. Lowey (D-NY) today released new legislation to reopen and fund most federal agencies through September 30.

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

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.
