Amodei Statement on Government Funding Packages for Fiscal Year 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Logan Tucker, 202-225-6155

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-02) today released the following statement after voting in favor of H.R. 1158, and H.R. 1865, two legislative packages that include all 12 Fiscal Year 2020 appropriations bills.

“Look at what we can actually accomplish when we make it a priority,” said Rep. Amodei. “In terms of the reforms, funding priorities, and responsible spending reductions included in these bills, Nevadans can certainly claim a number of victories. More specifically, these packages will increase funding for Department of Interior (DOI) operations including wildland fire management, Lake Tahoe restoration efforts, hazardous fuels reductions, watershed restoration, and the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Wild Horse and Burro Program. The Interior portion of these bills also allocates $12 million for radium cleanup efforts, which the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) would be eligible to receive.

“In addition to providing funds to secure our Southern border, prioritize national security, and rebuild our military, other wins for the Silver State include funding for rural development programs, rural housing, Public Health Training Centers, and critical transportation and infrastructure programs.

“Amid all of the short-term continuing resolutions and recent disruptions we’ve encountered with regard to fully funding the federal government, I’m pleased to be entering the second session of the 116th Congress by providing certainty to our government agencies for the remainder of the Fiscal Year.”
