Joyce Supports Funding for First 6 Appropriations Bills, Highlights OH-14 Wins

WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, Congressman Dave Joyce (OH-14) released the following statement on his vote for the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2024. The bill passed the House of Representatives and is now heading to the Senate for consideration.

“While the package is not as strong as I would like, House Republicans secured conservative wins, like fully funding veterans’ health care programs, that can pass a Democrat-led Senate and White House. Most importantly, this bill makes historic strides to put America back on the track to fiscal responsibility.”

This package includes Fiscal Year 2024 funding measures for the Appropriations Subcommittees on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies; Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies; Energy and Water Development; Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies; Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies; and Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies.

OH-14 Wins:

“As an appropriator, I fought to bring your hard-earned tax dollars back to Northeast Ohio. This bill included over $38 million in funding for local priorities including funds for dredging, improvements to infrastructure and roads, and resources for first responders,” said Congressman Dave Joyce.
