Testimony From Minnesotans on Fiscal Year 2019 Budget and Appropriations Priorities

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn), a senior member of the House Appropriations Committee, heard testimony from Minnesota community and nonprofit leaders about their budget and appropriations priorities at a public meeting in the Minnesota State Senate Office Building on Friday, March 9, 2018.

Congresswoman McCollum listens to Minnesota leaders on their appropriations and budget priorities.

Opening Statement

In her opening statement, Congresswoman McCollum reviewed recent developments in Congress on budget and appropriations and condemned President Donald Trump's fiscal year 2019 budget proposal: "Making smart investments in our families, communities, and security will pay far bigger returns than making dumb cuts that result in pain, divestment, and lost opportunities. Together we can make critical investments that help every Minnesotan and American contribute and succeed."
