Congressional Committees Outline Funding Allocations

June 19, 2009—Yesterday, the Senate Appropriations Committee approved its FY2010 302(b) allocations, which provide spending amounts that allow the Subcommittees to work on their respective funding bills. The Senate 302(b) allocation for Labor, HHS, and Education is $163.1 billion—almost $10 billion more than the FY2009 allocation.

Last week, the House Appropriations Committee passed by party-line vote, 34-21, its FY2010 302(b) allocations for Labor HHS, and Education is $160.1 billion—$7.5 billion more than FY2009.

The House Labor, HHS, and Education Appropriations Subcommittee is expected to introduce its bill in early July, while the Senate Subcommittee expects to introduce its bill in late July. Both Subcommittees intend to pass their respective bills prior to the Congressional August recess.
