Rogers Lauds Passage of Bipartisan Budget Agreement


Washington, Dec 12 -

House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers today praised the U.S. House of Representatives for passing the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013, which provides topline discretionary spending levels for fiscal years 2014 and 2015.

“Congress made the right move for America today by passing this budget agreement,” Chairman Rogers said. “Passing a budget is the first step toward righting our fiscal ship. I am encouraged by the progress that Congress is making to break through the gridlock and fulfill one of our most basic duties – funding the federal government.”

“With the approval of these spending levels, my Committee will be able to get down to business on our Appropriations bills, and I anticipate that we will start at once,” Chairman Rogers continued. “We have a heavy lift ahead of us – drafting, negotiating, and passing these bills in just over one month – but I am certain my colleagues on both the Senate and House Appropriations Committees are up to the task.”
