“No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law” – U.S. Constitution, Article 1, Section 9
One of Congress’ most fundamental constitutional duties is the appropriations process—the annual allocation of funds for federal discretionary programs, supporting everything from the national defense, to interstate transportation, to food assistance for low-income seniors, to research and development, and much more. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I intend to fight for the priorities that are most important for our state, and I want to hear directly from you about what those should be.
If your organization uses federal funding to help carry out your mission, please fill out this form here to let me know about the programs that are important to you, and why. Due to the spending constraints of the federal budget, Congress will not be able to fund all of the programs that I think are worthy, but your feedback will be crucial in helping provide input to know what is important to fight for this year.
*Please know that this form is provided for your input regarding federal discretionary funding. It’s not relevant for entitlement programs, tax policy, or other mandatory elements of the federal budget.
