Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2055, Military Construction And Veterans Affairs And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2012 June 2, 2011
Alcee Hastings, D-FL
"Mr. Speaker, the underlying legislation contains essential funding for critical military construction programs and for our Nation’s veterans. It is fitting that we consider this legislation so soon after Memorial Day when the sacrifices made by so many servicemen and -women are still on our minds. Veterans deserve our thanks and our admiration, and we owe them the necessary resources to meet their health care, education and housing needs."
Progress On The Fiscal Year 2003 Appropriations Bills September 24, 2002
Robert Byrd, D-WV
"The administration tries to point political fingers at the Senate charging that we are spending too much on domestic programs. But where is the real growth in spending? The President proposed a 13 percent, or $45 billion, increase in spending for our Nation’s defense programs. Let us note that the $759 billion ceiling forced the House to cut the President’s request for the Department of Defense by $1.6 billion. The $768 billion ceiling available in the Senate allowed the Senate to restore $1.2 billion of that cut in DoD and the funds are being used for military readiness programs, for essential military construction programs, and for counter terrorism projects. In addition, the Senate was able to add $375 million to the President’s February request for nuclear programs at the Department of Energy."
