House Appropriations Panel Approves FY 2015 Subcommittee Allocations, CJS Bill

May 9, 2014—The House Appropriations Committee May 8 approved its subcommittee allocations for fiscal year (FY) 2015.

The allocations ― also known as 302(b) ― adhere to the overall discretionary spending cap of $1.014 trillion mandated by the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 (P.L. 113-67), which set spending levels for both FYs 2014 and 2015.

For the Labor-HHS-Education subcommittee, the committee allocated $155.7 billion, about $1.1 billion less than the FY 2014 omnibus spending bill (P.L. 113-76). The committee’s action is a marked departure from FY 2014, when the House committee slashed the Labor-HHS allocation by 18.6 percent compared to the previous year.

The committee also approved by voice vote the Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies (CJS) FY 2015 spending bill, which provides $7.409 billion, record high funding, for the National Science Foundation (NSF) [see Washington Highlights, May 2].
