Murkowski to Launch FY 2023 Appropriations Request Page
President’s Budget Request Starts Formal Budget Process
U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) issued the following statement after President Biden unveiled a budget request for Fiscal Year 2023:
“The President proposes, Congress disposes. Now that the President has detailed his priorities, those of us in Congress will begin to evaluate which programs to fund and at what levels. As part of this, and just as we did for FY 2022, we will have an opportunity to bring taxpayer dollars back to our state through a very transparent Congressionally Directed Spending process,” Senator Murkowski said. “I look forward to hearing directly from Alaskans about their needs so I can advocate for them, and help build on the considerable progress we made last year.”
Senator Murkowski, a senior member of the Appropriations Committee and Ranking Member of the Interior-Environment Subcommittee, will make the Appropriations Request Form for FY 2023 available for interested Alaskans on her website starting today. The FY 2023 appropriations process includes opportunities to fund local projects through Congressionally Directed Spending, a reformed process where the Senate Appropriations Committee will, on a bipartisan basis with established criteria, accept requests for Congressionally Directed Spending items.
