Chairman Denny Rehberg today stated that the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health & Human Service and Education will mark-up the fiscal year 2013 bill on Wednesday, July 18 at 10 am. In preparation, the Subcommittee held 7 open, public hearings and Rehberg had more than 100 meetings including at least 78 with Montanans since January, 2012.
"If Washington is going to tackle our spending problem, we've simply got to start setting priorities. We can strike a balance between funding responsible, effective programs that work for people and trimming waste and duplication to help reduce the deficit. I look forward to seeking even more public input as this legislation moves forward."
