    Dear Mr. Speaker: By direction of the Committee on

authority provided to the Committee on Appropriations in the 
Joint Explanatory Statement to the Committee of Conference for 
S. Con. Res. 11, the concurrent resolution on the budget for 
fiscal year 2016.
            Sincerely,
                                             Harold Rogers,
                                                          Chairman.

                                 REPORT

    The Committee on Appropriations submits the following 
report on the revised suballocation of budget allocations for 
fiscal year 2016 pursuant to section 302(b) of the 
Congressional Budget Act of 1974.
    The report is consistent with the ``Allocations of Spending 
Authority to House Committee on Appropriations'' included in 
the Joint Explanatory Statement of the Committee of Conference 
for S. Con. Res. 11, the concurrent resolution on the budget 
for fiscal year 2016 as well as with the current law levels for 
discretionary spending required by the Budget Control Act of 
2011 (P.L. 112-25) and enforced through sequestration.
    The Committee, in distributing the allocation among the 
regular appropriations bills, has remained within the 
allocation's totals.

                             MINORITY VIEWS

    Democrats on the Committee all voted no on the revised 
302(b) allocations. To be clear, the revisions are not the 
issue. Our problem is with the underlying allocations and the 
sequester caps from which these allocations flow. We cannot let 
this occasion go without restating the obvious: we face a 
predictable and avoidable crisis in the fall. The Senate cannot 
bring any appropriation bills to the floor under these caps and 
the President reminds again and again that he will veto any 
appropriation bill that comes across his desk until we settle 
on a reasonable way to replace the caps.
    Why are we not acting on the real problem? The President 
reiterated his willingness to engage on the sequester caps. 
Until the Republican leadership shows its willingness to 
negotiate a way to raise the caps, the bills we are considering 
in committee are on a bridge to nowhere.
