Congresswoman Barbara Lee Advances Over $10 Million in Appropriations Spending Bills for California’s 13th District

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Barbara Lee (CA-13), senior member of the House Appropriations Committee, celebrated the inclusion of funding for projects across California’s 13th district in this year’s Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22) Appropriations Bills.  

Congresswoman Lee successfully fought for this funding to be included through several Appropriations subcommittees, including Labor, Health and Human Services, Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and more.  

“In order for our nation to build back bolder from this pandemic and economic crisis, we must take this opportunity to strengthen our infrastructure, public health services, and cultural institutions,” said Congresswoman Barbara Lee. “I’m proud to have secured critical funding in this year’s FY22 Appropriations bills for housing, public health services, and violence prevention programs in California’s 13th district. It is more important than ever that we make bold investments to support the health and well-being of our community.”
