Appropriations and Budget
As a senior member of the House Appropriations Committee and a former member of the House Budget Committee, I have fought consistently for robust investments in education, innovation, infrastructure, and the other things that make our nation strong, while also working to promote fairness and fiscal responsibility in the federal budget process.
In the current Congress, I serve as the senior Democratic member of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, which oversees federal transportation and housing funding. I also serve on the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee and the State and Foreign Operations Subcommittee.
My role as the only Appropriations Committee member from North Carolina has also allowed me to ensure that our state gets its fair share of federal resources by fighting for programs and projects on which it depends, including scientific and biomedical research. I have also secured funding for a wide range of local projects that directly benefit the Fourth District.
As your representative, I will continue to fight for a federal budget that protects critical domestic investments while also charting a responsible path back to fiscal balance. I hope you will keep in touch with me as Congress debates these important issues.

Remarks for Congressman David Price (NC-04)
Consideration of FY2018 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill
September 6th, 2017
As delivered on the House floor.
Mr. Chairman, I thank our ranking member for yielding, and I thank her and our chairman for their good work. I must still rise, however, in opposition to the fiscal 2018 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies bill, and the Republican Omnibus bill.
