House Approves Rep. Calvert’s Interior and Environment Appropriations Bill
Today, the House of Representatives approved (217 to 199) the Fiscal Year 2019 Interior and Environment Appropriations bill, which was authored by Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42). Rep. Calvert serves as the Chairman of the Interior and Environment Appropriations Subcommittee.
“I want to thank my colleagues for supporting the FY19 Interior Appropriations bill,” said Rep. Calvert. “I am proud to have crafted a bill that balances fiscal restraint with the need to fund a number of American priorities like our National Park Service, the Smithsonian, Native American programs, efforts to prevent and combat wildfires, and the development an earthquake early warning system for the West Coast. We also continue to work towards shrinking the bureaucracy at EPA by focusing funds on programs that actually clean our air and water.”
