Senate Passes Three FY24 Appropriations Bills
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Susan Collins, Vice Chairman of the Appropriations Committee, announced today that the U.S. Senate has passed three Fiscal Year 2024 (FY24) appropriations bills by a vote of 82-15. The bills must now be conferenced with the U.S. House of Representatives.
The three bills are: the Fiscal Year 2024 Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies (MilCon-VA); Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies; and Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies (THUD) appropriations bills—all of which passed out of Committee unanimously.
“These important bills honor our nation’s veterans; support our farmers, ranchers, and rural communities; and improve transportation infrastructure and housing opportunities throughout the United States,” said Senator Collins. “I look forward to working with Chair Murray and our colleagues to build on this progress by continuing to process our Committee-passed appropriations bills on the Senate floor.”
