Joint Letter Expressing Opposition to H.R. 5895

June 06, 2018

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and 18 other environmental groups sent a letter to members of the House of Representatives, urging opposition to H.R. 5895, a ‘minibus’ appropriations package which includes the FY19 Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations bill. This bill fails to provide adequate funding to crucial programs and continues the pattern of inserting harmful, unrelated policy riders into spending bills which undermines the already challenging budget process.
