House and Senate Appropriations Allocations Approved for FY 2003
In late June, 2002, the House and Senate Appropriations Committees approved the amounts to be spent in fiscal year 2003, also known by the term 302(b) allocations. Differences between House and Senate levels will need to be resolved in conference. For some subcommittee levels, spending figures are identical (District of Columbia, Foreign Operations, Legislative and Treasury Postal) or relatively close (Agriculture, Defense, Energy and Water, VA-HUD).
For other subcommittees, the discrepancies between the House and Senate were more pronounced. The Senate figure for Commerce-Justice-State is $43.5 billion, or $3.1 billion higher than the House level. For Labor-HHS-Education, the Senate figure of $134 billion exceeds the House level by $4 billion. And for Transportation, the Senate figure of $21.1 billion exceeds the House counterpart by $1.7 billion. For the Interior Subcommittee, the House figure of $19.7 billion exceeds the Senate level by $744 million.
