U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today supported the Senate’s passage of H.R. 6157, the Department of Defense; Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies minibus appropriations bill, after serving on the Conference Committee to negotiate the House and Senate’s differences in their respective versions of H.R. 6157.

“This legislation will help expedite the construction of a new school for students living on Fort Riley, will modernize the Department of Defense and will provide a significant boost in NIH and opioid crisis resources,” said Sen. Moran. “I’m pleased the Senate has worked diligently to advance our appropriations bills and return to regular order to bring sorely-needed stability to the annual budget and appropriations process.”

Sen. Moran is a member of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense and Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Related Agencies.

Other members of the Conference Committee for H.R. 6157 included Senators Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.).
