Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 May 19, 2016
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, Senators have been working diligently this week, continuing our efforts to advance American priorities and responsibly fund important programs through the appropriations process. We have made good progress so far. The Senate already passed one funding bill by a broad majority at a record early time. Another Appropriations subcommittee approved its own funding bill just the other day, and it is my hope that we will be able to move two more funding measures across the finish line very shortly. With continued work and cooperation, we can do just that."

Energy And Water Development Appropriations Bill May 12, 2016
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, after much deliberation from both sides of the aisle, today we will complete our work on the Energy and Water appropriations bill. We know this bill is the result of a great deal of effort, research, and collaboration across the aisle. It passed out of the committee unanimously. It was subject to nearly two dozen amendments from both parties on the floor. As Senator Alexander pointed out yesterday, we have clearly had an open process from the start that benefited both sides."
