Blunt Statement on Budget Agreement

July 23, 2019

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.), a member of Senate Republican leadership and the Senate Appropriations Committee, issued the following statement after President Trump and congressional leaders announced they reached a two-year budget agreement:

“This agreement will allow Congress to move forward with an appropriations process where we’re able to look closely at every program we’re funding, eliminate programs that aren’t needed or aren’t working, and set priorities that will have the most benefit for the most people. It increases resources for the military at a time when we face more threats from more directions than ever before. It will also give every member the opportunity to have a public, wide-ranging debate on these bills so taxpayers have the confidence that their dollars are being spent wisely. It’s a big achievement for President Trump and his administration and it will increase certainty, transparency, and accountability as we move forward.”
