The 12 U.S. House Appropriations Subcommittees will consider the bills funding the federal government for Fiscal Year 2021 during the week of July 6, according to Josh Reiner of PCA’s Government Affairs Team.

The Interior-Environment (I&E) Subcommittee, which funds the Environmental Protection Agency will hold its markup on July 7 at 11:00 am. Later that day, Energy and Water (E&W), which funds the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, will hold its markup at 3:00 pm. The Transportation and Housing and Urban Development Subcommittee (THUD), which funds the Department of Transportation, will hold its on July 8 at 11:00 am. The full Committee will hold consideration of I&E and E&W on July 10. They have not yet announced when THUD’s will be.

While the specific bills are unlikely to become law, they serve as a benchmark for how Congress views the various programs at federal agencies. The Committee is expected to release the text of these bills about a day before the markups. The Senate Appropriations Committee has not yet announced its schedule, Josh writes in PCA’s THIS WEEK IN WASHINGTON report.
