Appropriations Committee

Since the Appropriations Committee does not individually advance bills that are included in the budget, we have provided a summary of committee action on bills referred to the committee. Though these summaries are not official committee statements, they are intended to read similarly.  You will find information on testifiers, statements of intent, the funding requested and the action the committee took regarding the bill. Bills that were advanced individually from the Committee are not included in this summary. Such bills have official committee statements that can be found on this website.
