Appropriations

The Senate Appropriations Committee helps write the legislation that allocates federal funds to government agencies, departments, and organizations on an annual basis. It is responsible for reviewing the President's budget request, hearing testimony from government officials and other witnesses, and drafting the spending plans for the coming fiscal year.

As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Manchin ensures that federal spending is targeted towards priorities that strengthen our nation and protect, promote, and benefit West Virginians. Through this role, Senator Manchin helps drive entrepreneurship and innovation in the Mountain State and across the country. He works to ensure that federal agencies are making smart investments with taxpayer dollars in the needs of rural communities, ranging from transportation and communications infrastructure to programs that address opioid misuse and grow small businesses in West Virginia.
