Chairman Womack Leads Full Appropriations Markup of FY24 FSGG Bill
Washington, July 13, 2023
Washington, DC— July 13, 2023…Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) lead his first full House Appropriations Committee markup on the FY24 Financial Services and General Government bill as Chairman. This legislation provides $25.279 billion in non-defense discretionary spending across several critical agencies, includes $45 million in defense spending, and rejects over $6.3 billion in discretionary funding increases within the President Biden’s budget request.
Chairman Womack said, “This bill right-sizes the federal agencies under our jurisdiction within the established caps while not impacting their ability to effectively operate for the American people. The pursuit of a job-killing, burdensome and unnecessary regulatory agenda only serves to further bloat a federal bureaucracy that has become too big, too intrusive, and counter-intuitive to limited government. It is our Article I responsibility to ensure our federal agencies are consistent with the intent of Congress in the most cost-effective manner possible. This bill accomplishes that.”
