Lowey_Nita Washington, DC – The Appropriations Labor, Health, and Human Services, and Education Subcommittee today passed the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Act, including $2.4 million requested by Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-Westchester/Rockland) for important projects to enhance health and education in Westchester and Rockland Counties.

“Federal assistance helps our communities finance important public safety projects without raising local property taxes, and I am pleased that our region stands to benefit greatly from the 2010 appropriations process,” said Lowey.  “The Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Act will help many of our schools, communities, and health care providers provide the service residents of our area deserve.”

Lowey is a senior member of the House Appropriations Committee, where she chairs the State and Foreign Operations Subcommittee and sits on the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education and Homeland Security Subcommittees.

The 2010 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations bill contains $2.4 million for projects in the lower Hudson Valley requested by Lowey, including:

  1. Here we are in the worse recession since the great depression and she’s throwing our money at this feel good garbage. Maybe she and her cohorts want us to go into a depression.

  2. I’ll take a fluffy matzo ball soup with a pastrami sandwich on rye and a side of chopped liver. Can you believe that this woman is what we send to congress?
