WASHINGTON, D.C- Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) announced today that Louisiana’s 3rd District will receive an additional $4,300,000 in Community Project Funding through H.Res. 1102, which passed the U.S. House of Representatives. Congressman Higgins previously announced $40.4 million in Community Project Funding through H.Res. 1061.


“I opposed House Resolution 1102 because of the total level of overall spending and the removal of many Conservative policy riders through the Senate. However, I dedicated months of effort to get our community funding language included in the 12 appropriations bills that were passed through the House,” said Congressman Higgins“My office worked very closely with our local government entities and district stakeholders for the better part of 2023 to secure Louisiana 3rd District funding in the legislation. These projects are critical for South Louisiana’s economic prosperity and financial growth. My office has long prioritized funding for our communities, and we will continue to work through the Congressional appropriations process to deliver wins for Louisiana.”
