Sending Office: Committee on Appropriations-Minority Staff
Sent By:


January 9, 2018

Dear Republican Colleague,

I committed to you and the Republican Conference that I would change the way that the Appropriations Committee communicates with Members.  It is important that you are provided information that describes the policies and principles that are funded, or in
some cases, not funded, in each Appropriations bill.  You will be receiving one-pagers, like those attached, prior to consideration of all Appropriations bills.

This week, the new House Leadership will put forward for a vote four Appropriations bills that passed the Senate last year – Agriculture, Financial Services and General Government, Interior and Environment, and Transportation and Housing and Urban Development. 
This plan ignores the will of the House by eliminating Members’ involvement in the appropriations process.  Even more concerning, this plan will not secure our border and address the humanitarian and security crisis the President described in his speech from
the Oval Office last night.

Enclosed are one-pagers with information on the bills the House will consider this week.  If you or your staff have questions, please contact:

Johnnie Kaberle

Deputy Staff Director

Sarah Flaim

Communications Director



Kay Granger
