Congressman Biggs Votes to Pass Spending Rescissions Package
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last night, the House passed H.R. 3, the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act to cut nearly $15 billion in appropriated – but unspent – federal funds. Congressman Biggs voted to approve the package and issued the following statement:
“While spending reductions are encouraging, it pales in comparison to the cuts required to balance our budget and eliminate our national debt. A little is better than nothing; however, Congress should never have put itself in this position again by passing the $1.3 trillion omnibus bill. President Trump said he would never sign a bill like the omnibus again, and I hope Congress heeds his warning. We must protect our grandchildren from a ruinous economic fate and rein in our reckless spending habits.”
Congressman Andy Biggs is a first-term Representative from Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District, representing parts of Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, and Queen Creek.
