Supporting FY 2021 Allocations to Labor, Health and Human Services and Education Appropriations Subcommittees 

06-22-2020 19:19

PAA joins 371 organizations supporting the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education and Related Agencies appropriations bill (Labor-HHS) – thank you for increasing investments in these important programs for fiscal year (FY) 2020 and urge you to significantly boost the FY 2021 allocations to address vital and on-going needs. The programs and services funded by the Labor-HHS-Education Subcommittee have a profound impact on health and well-being, child development, educational and skills attainment, and productivity, yet they have been shortchanged in the appropriations process over the last decade. The bill has lost almost $16 billion in purchasing power over the last decade; it would take an allocation of $199 billion just to return to the FY 2010 level in inflation-adjusted dollars.
