U.S. Congressman Mike Simpson - Appropriations Committee Interior Chairman
U.S. Congressman Mike Simpson - 2nd District of Idaho

Simpson's I&E Report:
an Interior and Environment Appropriations Update from Chairman Simpson

A Look Back at the Week:

Native American Public Witness Hearings
This week Chairman Simpson held three hearings at which witnesses testified on issues facing Native American communities.  Over the course of two days, more than 60 witnesses testified on issues ranging from health care to criminal justice in Indian Country to resource management.  The Chairman appreciated the opportunity to interact with tribes from across the country, and testimony will be very useful as the subcommittee begins crafting the Interior and Environment Appropriations Act for FY2013.

Upcoming Events:

While the House Appropriations Committee intends to begin crafting and marking up bills next month, there is currently no schedule for subcommittee or full committee markup of the FY13 Interior and Environment Appropriations bill.
