Labor-HHS-Education Mark Up this Week
House Passes FY 2013 Homeland Security Bill
The Senate Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee was scheduled to release and vote on its FY 2013 funding bill on June 12, 2012. The full Senate Appropriations Committee is expected to take the measure up on Thursday, June 14, 2012.
On June 7, 2012 the full House passed the FY 2013 funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security.
The legislation included $120 million for the Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP), the same as in FY 2012. The Senate Appropriations Committee has approved legislation that would provide $150 million for EFSP in FY 2013, but the full Senate has yet to consider the bill.
