Madam Chair, I yield myself such time as I may consume.
First, I want to thank Chairman Rogers and my ranking member, Nita Lowey, for the commitment that they made to regular order, which is why we have our second appropriations bill on the House floor by May 1. It is my hope that we can stay true to this commitment throughout the remainder of this year.
Highlights of 2015 Legislative Branch Appropriations Act:
2014 enacted: $3.33 billion
2015 President’s request: $3.45 billion

The Chairman’s mark provides:
Thank you, Chairman Cole, Ranking Member Wasserman Schultz, and Chairman Rogers for your work on this bill. Today we consider the smallest of the appropriations bills, which funds the operations of our nation’s legislative branch.
Thank you, Chairman Cole and Ranking Member Wasserman Schultz, for your hard work on this Subcommittee. While this may be the smallest of the appropriations bills, your leadership serves as an example to others of how the partisan-divide can be bridged and compromise can be reached. I look forward to continuing my work with you and the rest of this Subcommittee.
