Although limited in size and representing only the last term of Carper's years in the House,
the Appropriations files provide a unique understanding of the work that goes into distribution of
public funds. Many of the steps involved in this annual legislative exercise are represented in this
series. The dissension that frequently occurs over how much money should go where is well
documented through correspondence, op-ed articles, and research files. Topics include the
following: Agricultural Domestic Food programs, Commerce, Justice and Judiciary, District of
Columbia, Interior, Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, Low Income Home Energy
Assistance Program, Treasury, and the Postal Service.
