Statement on Release of Subcommittee Chairmen's Labor, HHS & Education Appropriations Bill


Location: Washington, DC

House Appropriations Committee Ranking Democratic Member Rep. Norm Dicks made the following comments after release of the Republican leadership's draft of the FY2012 Labor, HHS and Education Appropriations bill text:

"Yesterday we saw committee reports that had never been reviewed, amended or voted on by the full committee. Today the Republican leadership released text of a draft Labor, HHS and Education Appropriations bill that hasn't even had a subcommittee markup. Again, Members of the Committee have been bypassed and relegated to the role of bystanders. Regular order has been short-circuited. Make no mistake: this is not a committee product. This draft bill represents the ideological position of one committee member - the subcommittee chairman."
