Committee Hearings – Week of 7-5-20

This week with the House and Senate on their extended 4th of July weekend we normally expect no more that a couple of hearings in the home district. But with the authority to conduct virtual hearings, the House Appropriations Committee (among others) is taking advantage of allowing members to physically remain in their districts to hold markups of the 12 appropriations bills.

Appropriations Bills

The various subcommittees of the House Appropriations Committee will be holding markup hearings for their respective bills on Monday through Wednesday of this week. The links below take you to the hearing page for each hearing. Those pages include links to the draft bills.

The first full Committee markup hearing will be held on Thursday. The Committee will conduct their markup of the following three bills:

• State and Foreign Operations Appropriations Bill, FY 2021,
• Agriculture Appropriations Bill, FY 2021, and
• Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Bill, FY 2021.

These three bills are likely to be combined into a single spending bill for consideration on the floor of the House; probably the first to be considered.
