Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher Votes for Bipartisan, Bicameral Congressional Funding Bill for FY2022
Washington, March 9, 2022
Today, Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher (TX-07) voted for the Funding for the People Act, a bipartisan government funding bill that funds essential programs, addresses many of the challenges we face at home and abroad, and provides more than $13 million for six community projects that Congresswoman Fletcher requested through the Community Funded Projects process.
“Tonight, Congress fulfilled its constitutional responsibility to appropriate funds for the benefit of the people, including funds to keep our communities safe, improve public health, and grow our economy. I am glad to announce that this bipartisan funding bill includes critical investments for our community and our country,” said Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher. “In particular, the bill includes nearly $10 million for Harris County Flood Control’s Meyergrove Detention Basin, the replacement and repair of waterlines in Bellaire and Jersey Village, and support for our Houston Fire, Police, and Health Departments. In addition to these Community Funded Projects, this legislation invests our resources in medical resources and research, establishing a new federal health agency to drive biomedical breakthroughs; the implementation of many new programs in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act; and in protecting our democracy at home and abroad. It reflects many of the priorities TX-07 constituents have asked me to support.”
For TX-07, Congresswoman Fletcher requested and secured the following Community Project Funding:
