Dr. Bucshon’s Statement on the Make America Secure and Prosperous Appropriations Act of 2018

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) –  Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. released the following statement after the House passed the Make America Secure and Prosperous Appropriations Act, which provides funding for President Trump’s agenda and the entire federal government for Fiscal Year 2018:

“For far too long, Washington has succumbed to irresponsible budgeting. Today, that ended and the people’s voices were heard. For the first time since 2009, the House passed all 12 appropriations bills on time. We made the tough decisions required of a governing majority. We achieved substantial conservative victories, provided funding for the military and border security, and restored the government funding process to regular order,” said Bucshon. “The House has done its job. It’s time for the Senate, which has yet to pass a funding bill, to join us in moving the President’s agenda forward and fulfilling our promises to the American people.”
