Reports on the Reckless & Partisan Labor, HHS, Education Appropriations Bill, FY13

Statement

Location: Unknown

"The bill proposed by the chairman - when adjusted for inflation and population growth - would bring funding back to levels not seen since 2001Â…The bill is also loaded down with numerous controversial partisan riders that have no place on an appropriations bill. This is by far the most partisan appropriations bill we have seen this year and a stark departure from the bipartisan cooperation we've experienced up until this point." Full Committee Ranking Member, Rep. Norm Dicks

"The cuts to critical programs covering family planning, economic security, mental health, women's health care and education--just to name a very few--are really just reckless and ought to be aired in public, not left to fester behind closed doors. Due to the Majority's failure to hold a public full committee debate on the bill, many of these proposed cuts have gone unnoticed by the millions of Americans they would harm should they become law." Subcommittee Ranking Member, Rep. Rosa Delauro
