Luetkemeyer Statement on Fiscal Year 2016 Budget Resolution Conference Report

The following is a statement from U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) after voting in support of the Fiscal Year 2016 Budget Resolution Conference Report:
“For the first time in six years, the House and the Senate were able to come together and agree to a budget that sets the guidelines for how much Washington will spend. Today, I supported a budget that, for the first time since 2001, balances in 10 years or less. Not only does this budget set America on a course to rein in spending, but it also prioritizes growing our economy, reforming our tax code, fully repealing the president’s health-care law; all without raising taxes on the American people. This budget focuses on helping hard-working Americans get ahead by building a strong, more competitive economy and nation.”
