Please note: When you click on the links below, the bill your browser opens may not be what you expect, because the appropriations language you need has been included by the Committee in a bill with an unrelated title. For example, LHHS appropriations might be included in a bill titled Mil-Con-VA. Rest assured, you have opened the correct document; simply proceed to the relevant “title” or “division” of the bill.
