Many bills were passed on April 1. No fooling! Among them were the appropriations to the Justice system bill (H.F.24500) which passed by a slim margin and the Economic Development Appropriations bill which passed the House by a 97 to 2 vote. Among other bills passed, a long overdue bill on rural water systems passed 97 to 0 and an appropriations bill for agriculture, natural resources and environmental protection passed by a 72 to 27 vote. Appropriation bills authorize the government to spend money for certain functions and programs.
Thank you for granting me the privilege of serving and representing you.
