The Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies (THUD) FY15 spending bill is scheduled for consideration by the Senate THUD Appropriations Subcommittee on June 3, and by the full Appropriations Committee on June 5. The bill represents the best hope for decent funding for HUD’s programs for the next fiscal year. The Senate THUD Appropriations Subcommittee received an overall 302(b) allocation, $2.4 billion higher than its House counterpart (see Memo, 5/23).
The Senate THUD Subcommittee will consider its bill on June 3 at 10:30 am ET in room 124 of the Dirksen Senate office building. The full Senate Appropriations Committee will take up the THUD bill, as well as the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies FY15 bill (see related article above), on June 5 at 10:30 am ET in room 106 of the Dirksen Senate office building.
The full House is expected to consider its THUD spending bill, H.R. 4745, during the week of June 9. The House Committee on Appropriations FY15 THUD bill proposed deep cuts to many HUD programs and flat funding for other programs that need additional annual funding just to maintain current assistance levels (see Memo, 5/23).
