    Dear Madam Speaker:  By direction of the Committee on 
Appropriations, I submit herewith the committee's report on the 
suballocation of budget allocations for fiscal year 2020.
    The suballocations contained in this report subdivide the 
allocation of budget authority and outlays in the ``Allocation 
of Spending Authority to the House Committee on 
Appropriations'' printed in the Congressional Record by the 
chairman of the House Committee on the Budget on May 3, 2019, 
pursuant to section 1 of House Resolution 293 of the 116th 
Congress.

            Sincerely,
                                             Nita M. Lowey,
                                                        Chairwoman.

    Mrs. Lowey, from the Committee on Appropriations, submitted the 
                               following

                                 REPORT

        SUBALLOCATION OF BUDGET ALLOCATIONS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2020

    The Committee on Appropriations submits the following 
report on the suballocation of budget allocations for fiscal 
year 2020, pursuant to section 302(b) of the Congressional 
Budget Act of 1974. This report is consistent with the 
``Allocation of Spending Authority to the House Committee on 
Appropriations'' printed in the Congressional Record on May 3, 
2019, by the chairman of the House Committee on the Budget 
pursuant to section 1 of House Resolution 293 of the 116th 
Congress (H. Res. 293).
    The submission of this report meets the requirement of 
section 302(b) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 and 
resulting requirement under the Rules of the House.
    The suballocations in this report do not include amounts 
for potential adjustments to the Committee on Appropriations' 
allocation for funding provided in reported bills for the 
purposes of section 251(b)(2) of the Balanced Budget and 
Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, or section 1 of H. Res. 
293. Those adjustments would be made after eligible funding is 
included in a bill reported to the House and the chairman of 
the Committee on the Budget subsequently adjusts the Committee 
on Appropriations' 302(a) allocation.

                             MINORITY VIEWS

    The Republican Members of the House Appropriations 
Committee oppose the Majority's subcommittee allocations. This 
level of spending is not only opposed by House Republicans, it 
will not be supported by the Senate or the White House.
    The Majority is moving forward without a budget agreement 
and drafting appropriations bills to unrealistic allocations. 
The resulting bills will have no chance of being enacted into 
law--potentially leading to Presidential vetoes, devasting 
sequestration cuts to our national defense, and another 
government shutdown.
    I am also concerned about the priorities reflected in the 
Majority's allocations. The Labor, Health and Human Services, 
Education Subcommittee receives a 6.6 percent or $11.8 billion 
increase over fiscal year 2019. The Financial Services and 
General Government Subcommittee receives a 5 percent increase 
over the current year. Spending on these activities should not 
be increasing when the Federal debt exceeds $22 trillion.
    I am particularly concerned about the Homeland Security 
Subcommittee allocation, which at less than a one percent 
increase, is insufficient to meet the humanitarian and security 
crisis at our southern border. We cannot deny that this crisis 
exists by starving agencies of critical resources.
    Instead of moving forward with these allocations, I believe 
we need to work with the Senate and the Administration in a 
bipartisan way to find common ground. The American people 
demand more from the Congress. They expect us to provide for 
the national defense, secure the border, and act in a fiscally 
responsible manner.
