Appropriations & Budget

Crafting a federal budget that fosters economic opportunity, invests in the future, and upholds fiscal responsibility is one of Congress’ most important roles. As a member of the powerful Appropriations Committee, I work every day to bring a common sense, Minnesota perspective to our federal budget.

As the Chair of the Interior-Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, I have prioritized protecting clean air and water, wild lands, and our nation’s natural and cultural legacy for future generations. As Vice Chair of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, I work to ensure that our servicemen and women are the most skilled and best trained and equipped fighting force in the world.

Congress Passes Wall Street Reform
The Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act has been passed by Congress and will be signed into law next week by President Obama. This historic legislation imposes common sense rules on Wall Street to protect consumers and prevent the abuses and recklessness that triggered the worst recession in 70 years.

Congresswoman McCollum voted for Wall Street reforms, which passed the House with the support of 234 Democrats and 3 Republicans.
