Enacted Full-Year Legislation
H.R. 2617 - Omnibus
Mr. Speaker, I rise today in opposition to the Senate Amendment to H.R. 6833, a short-term continuing resolution extending government funding through December 16th.
I oppose this CR for several reasons.
Madam Chair, thank you for yielding.
The revised allocations presented today do not change the spending levels that were adopted on a party-line vote last week. Because there are no substantive changes, I must once again oppose them.
Thank you, Chair DeLauro, so much for presenting the THUD bill to our committee today. I also want to thank Ranking Member Granger for her leadership and her stewardship.
Thank you, Madam Chair. Before I start, I want to join Mr. Diaz Balart and pause and recognize the subcommittee chair, Mr. Price. I know I speak for all of us when I say we are praying for Chairman Price and his family during this very difficult time.

WASHINGTON – Today, the Transportation and Housing and Urban Development Subcommittee and the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Subcommittee considered their appropriations bills for fiscal year 2023.

Thank you, my good friend, Mr. Diaz-Balart, for having us think about what's happening right now. We all work together and develop these bills that are so important, but we also work together as family. So thank you for that recognition.
