Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Brenda L. Lawrence issued the following statement on the House Committee on Appropriations’ passage of the FY2020 funding bill for the Departments of Labor, Health and Humans Services, Education, and Related Agencies (LHHS).

This bill appropriates $48 billion over the President’s fiscal year 2020 budget request, which continued a dangerous trend of underfunding essential programs.
