REAX Of Senate Appropriations Committee Vice Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) To Senate Republicans Delaying Fiscal Year 2021 Markups

Senate Democrats are committed to producing bipartisan bills.  There is bipartisan agreement that we need to address the COVID pandemic.  And if we want to truly address the issues of racial injustice that George Floyd’s tragic death has brought to the surface, we need more than symbolism, we need to appropriate money for programs that advance these issues.  Offering and considering amendments related to appropriations to address the most important issues of the day is not partisan, it is the job the Committee is here to do.
