WITTMAN: BUDGET PROCESS IS BROKEN

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-1) released the following statement after opposing legislation to temporarily extend current spending levels for the federal government until December:

“When Congress recessed in August, I demanded that the House remain in Washington to complete the important work expected of us by our constituents. Chief among that unfinished business is the need to get our government funded responsibly. And yet again, Congress finds itself today making a temporary, short-sighted decision at the last minute. The simple truth is that our budget process is broken. Congress absolutely must return to the business of regular order, with regular passage of budget resolutions and appropriations bills. There is plenty of time to remain in Washington to get this done with a responsible, long-term outlook in mind, and I could not support this short-sighted approach to the funding of the essential functions of our government.”

Congressman Rob Wittman represents the First District of Virginia. He serves on the House Natural Resources Committee and the House Armed Services Committee where he is the Chairman of the Readiness Subcommittee.
