Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives met Tuesday to reshuffle membership on the Appropriations Committee and its subcommittees. Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) will remain the ranking Democrat on the foreign operations subcommittee, which reviews budget requests for foreign funding, including aid to Israel, the Palestinians and Arab countries.
