Thank you for your interest in submitting appropriations requests through my congressional office. As a member of Congress, it is my job to ensure we keep our federal government funded, and advocate for programs that are important to South Texans. To submit your requests for this fiscal year, please complete the TX-15 Appropriations Request Form available here.
All requests are due no later than 5:00 pm CST / 6:00 pm EST on Friday, March 9, 2018
Instructions: Please fill out one form per request. If the request is for program funding and complimentary report language, you may submit a single form and fill out both sections. To the extent possible, please provide detailed information regarding the location of your request in the Subcommittee bill or report, down to the activity, account or country level, if applicable. We also ask that you include all prompted relevant information regarding prior year Appropriations requests as this is extremely helpful context and background for the Member. Finally, please review the clause 9(e) of Rule XXI of the Rules of the House regarding earmarks below prior to submitting your request. No requests for an earmark will be considered or submitted.
Due to Clause 9(e) of Rule XXI in the House Rules, we are banned from requesting earmarks or specific project requests. Any project requests submitted to this office will not be considered. A congressional earmark is defined by Clause 9(e) Rule XXI as such: For the purpose of this clause, the term "congressional earmark" means a provision or report language included primarily at the request of a Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, or Senator providing, authorizing or recommending a specific amount of discretionary budget authority, credit authority, or other spending authority for a contract, loan, loan guarantee, grant, loan authority, or other expenditure with or to an entity, or targeted to a specific State, locality or Congressional district, other than through a statutory or administrative formula- driven or competitive award process.
