Washington, DC – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 4502, the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, Agriculture, Rural Development, Energy and Water Development, Financial Services and General Government, Interior, Environment, Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Act of Fiscal Year 2022: 

“Instead of crafting meaningful legislation that Members on both sides of the aisle could support, House Democrats have once again chosen the ‘go-it-alone’ approach. From the beginning, the Majority’s appropriations package was based on unrealistic and irresponsible funding levels and filled with flawed, partisan policy provisions,” said Congressman Lucas. “The American people deserve a Congress who is willing to put partisanship aside in order to keep the lights of the federal government on. We must return to regular order- or risk the consequences of further continuing resolutions, or even worse, government shutdowns.”
