Washington, July 1, 2021
Washington, D.C.— Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) voted in favor of the fiscal year 2022 Financial Services and General Government funding bill. The bill passed on a 33 to 24 vote.
For fiscal year 2022, the bill includes $29.1 billion in funding, an increase of $4.8 billion over 2021. The funding bill includes many of Congressman Cuellar’s legislative priorities for the constituents of the 28th Congressional District of Texas:
“The COVID-19 global pandemic caused many challenges for ordinary Americans and small business owners simply looking to make ends meet. The pandemic also exposed gaps in our border processing centers and federal building capacities. While I have continued to advocate for pandemic rescue opportunities, the residents of my district deserve more support. That is why I voted in favor of the FSGG funding bill,” said Congressman Cuellar. “We must continue to support our men and women in blue and green by providing them with the necessary resources to secure our southern border. We must also provide resources to underserved businesses while boosting consumer potential. Through the 2022 funding bill, we will secure our southern border, protect our democracy, rebuild the IRS, support working and middle-class families. I thank Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and Subcommittee Chairman Mike Quigley (D-IL) for their support of south Texas communities.”
