Department of Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2020

Jun. 19, 2019 | H.R. 2740

The FY 2020 appropriations bill for the Department of Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies (Labor HHS) provides a long awaited boost to labor programs that have been level-funded for years. The bill recognizes the importance in investing in workers, worker protections, health and education, and rejects many of the proposed cuts called for in the administration’s budget proposal.

Specifically, the bill provides a total of $13 billion in funding for the Department of Labor, includes an increase of $8.5 billion for the Department of Health and Human Services and a $4.4 billion increase for the Department of Education. It contains a $67 million increase in funding for the National Labor Relations Board, and provides an advance appropriation of $495 million for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). This increase in funding recognizes that the CPB, along with the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, bolsters the economy and ensures that all Americans have access to artistic and education content. The appropriations bill passed the House on June 19, 2019.
