Press Release
Slate of Recommendations Sent to Democratic Steering & Policy Committee for Ratification

Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-NY), Ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee, today announced the recommendations Appropriations Committee Democrats have sent to the Democratic Steering & Policy Committee regarding Ranking Members and full membership of each of the twelve Appropriations subcommittees in the 114th Congress. 

“The individuals recommended to serve as a Ranking Member of an Appropriations subcommittee reflect the talent and diversity of the Democratic caucus,” said Lowey, “and each has the experience, knowledge, and passion necessary to succeed in his or her role.  In the 114th Congress, Appropriations Democrats will work to support services and investments critical to American families, defeat divisive and ideological policy riders, and prevent another irresponsible government shutdown.

Lowey continued, “I extend special congratulations to Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA) and Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN), who are recommended to serve as a Ranking Member for the first time, and to Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-WA), a new member of the Appropriations Committee.”
