Bergman Releases Statement on President's Budget Request
Washington - Congressman Jack Bergman, member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement after the President released his budget outline request for FY 2019:
"President Trump's proposed budget request is the first step in passing a budget for Fiscal Year 2019. I look forward to reviewing the Administration's budget suggestions and working with my colleagues on the Budget Committee to pass a balanced budget for 2019. It's not lost on me that our country faces a severe budgetary crisis. We cannot continue down the road of reckless spending and irresponsible governing that has become the new normal over the past decade.
"Congress has the final say on funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, Essential Air Service, and other important government services, and I will continue to fight to protect these important issues that directly affect the constituents of the First District. In the days and weeks ahead, I will continue my work with the House Budget Committee to pass a fiscally conservative budget for 2019 that remains focused on border security, defense, and infrastructure.”
