Dec 23, 2022

Washington, DC — Today, the House Budget Committee released a 2022 End of Year Report and an accompanying video of Chairman John Yarmuth (KY-03) highlighting the Committee’s work over the past year. Under the leadership of Chairman Yarmuth, the Committee performed a key role in the passage of the landmark Inflation Reduction Act and held numerous hearings examining issues central to our country’s fiscal health. And Congress enacted good-government reforms championed by Chairman Yarmuth and the Committee to improve critical oversight and transparency of Executive Branch spending.

“2022 was a landmark year of progress for the American people, and I am proud to be leaving Congress on such a high note,” said retiring Budget Committee Chairman John Yarmuth. “This year, we enacted historic, pro-growth, and fiscally responsible legislation to lower costs for working families and tackle some of our nation’s biggest challenges, including the climate crisis. We continued to see the remarkable impact of the American Rescue Plan in our record-breaking jobs recovery, with more than 10.5 million jobs created since President Biden took office. And the Committee worked closely with the Biden Administration to ensure the Fiscal Year 2023 Budget met the needs of working families and made smart investments to address deficits in our communities.”

“I’m grateful to my colleagues for entrusting me to lead Democrats on the Budget Committee these past six years, and I look forward to seeing Ranking Member Boyle continue our fight to help the people who need help the most,” Yarmuth concluded.

The report highlights the accomplishments and work of the House Budget Committee over the past year, including 19 reports and nine hearings. These hearings and reports spanned a wide range of topics, including abolishing the debt limit, the importance of early childhood investments, women’s participation in the workforce, the life-changing impact of the historic American Rescue Plan, and President Biden’s Fiscal Year 2023 budget request.
