House Postpones Labor-HHS Markup

July 26, 2013—The House Labor-HHS Appropriations Subcommittee July 24 postponed the markup of its FY 2014 spending bill that had been scheduled for the following day.  Although the official reason given for the postponement was a scheduling conflict with other spending bills being considered on the House floor, Congressional Quarterly reported, “The postponement also came amid new reports about the specific reductions that would be needed to get the Labor-HHS-Education bill to $122 billion in discretionary spending, down 23 percent from the $157 billion enacted level for this fiscal year…. Committee aides confirmed that the plan the panel would consider would cut education grants for low-income students 16 percent and reduce spending at the Labor Department by 13 percent. It would eliminate funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and use the savings to maintain backing for Head Start, special education and the National Institutes of Health.”
