Recent Activity

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. The legislation, H.R. 648, reflects bipartisan House-Senate conference agreements negotiated by Republican and Democratic appropriators in both chambers last year.
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.
January 14, 2019 Press Release
House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita M. Lowey (D-NY-17) and House Democrats today introduced two Continuing Resolutions to reopen the federal government and end the Trump Shutdown.
January 3, 2019 Press Release
“Senate Republicans now face a choice: They can vote for bills they have already supported and reopen the government or they can block them and prolong this unnecessary shutdown.”
January 3, 2019 Press Release
"Our new Democratic Majority was elected to end the chaos and govern responsibly. This legislative package to end the Trump Shutdown and fully reopen government consists of two parts, separating the disagreement between President Trump and Congress over border security from funding for the rest of the federal government."
