U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations website, Aug. 16, 2013 Committee history (At the beginning of the Fortieth Congress in March 1867, Senator Henry B. Anthony of Rhode Island offered a Senate resolution providing for the creation of "...a Committee on Appropriations, to consist of seven members." His purpose was "to divide the onerous labors of the Finance Committee with another committee" by separating the tax-writing and appropriating processes. The House had already established an Appropriations Committee two years earlier. Without further discussion, Anthony's resolution was considered by unanimous consent and agreed to, giving birth to the Senate Committee on Appropriations on March 6, 1867)
