Piggybacking?

OF course, I piggyback.

That’s how you get things done in Congress.

That’s how I got E-NAP, making more food assistance available for more families — by piggybacking on the 2014 Farm Bill.

That’s how I got the funding formula for island schools changed, by piggybacking on the Every Student Succeeds Act.

That is how the entire federal government was funded in 2014.

Leadership called me and said: Congressman, would it be okay if we piggyback the omnibus appropriation bill on to H.R. 83, the territories bill that extends the CW program from 2014 to 2019?

Piggybacking?

Anyone who understands how to be successful in Washington piggybacks all the time, whenever they can.

GREGORIO KILILI CAMACHO SABLAN
Member of Congress
