Eshoo Statement on Omnibus Bill

May 2nd, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C—Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released a statement following passage of the Omnibus spending bill for Fiscal Year 2017.

“The Omnibus spending bill funds the entire federal government and its passage on May 4th and avoided a government shutdown. Democrats won significant victories on critical investments for our country. Some highlights include $100 million for the electrification of Caltrain, sending a strong signal to the Administration that Congress supports this shovel-ready project; restoration of students’ access to year-round Pell Grants, and increased funding for the National Institutes of Health of $2 billion. The spending bill also includes increased funding for wildfire and federal highway emergency relief and protects 99 percent of the EPA’s budget. The Omnibus does not include funding for the President’s border wall.

“There were over 160 ‘poison pill’ riders in the bill which were eliminated, including provisions to defund Planned Parenthood and undermine the Affordable Care Act.”
