Labor, Health and Human Services, and Labor Community Responds to 302b Allocations

In March, Wisconsin Public Health Association joined almost 800 national, state, and local organizations on a letter calling for an increase in the allocation for the FY2018 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations bill available here. Over the last two weeks, the House and Senate have moved forward with their 302b allocations.

While the House Appropriations Committee provided $5 billion less than current funding, the Senate held the funding level for the bill flat after changes to “Changes in Mandatory Programs” or CHIMPS. Neither allocation meets the health, education, and labor needs of the American people. Thus, we have sent letters to House and Senate appropriators calling for a deal to raise the budget caps to allow for an increased allocation. You can access them using the links below:

  • 07/21/2017 Letter: 800 Organizations Oppose Flat Funding for Senate Allocation for Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies, FY 2018
  • 07/14/2017 Letter: 800 Organizations Oppose Cuts to House Allocation for Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies, FY 2018
