Granger Remarks at FY24 Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Bill Full Committee Markup

Jul 13, 2023

First, I want to thank Chairman Womack for his work on the Fiscal Year 2024 Financial Services bill.

As I have said before, to fully fund our national defense, veterans, and border security, other unnecessary spending must be reduced.

This bill rejects significant increases in the President’s Budget Request, and instead saves billions of dollars by reclaiming unspent funds from the Inflation Reduction Act and preventing the I.R.S. from hiring tens of thousands of new agents.

This bill addresses requests from members to include important policy riders and prohibit funding.

This bill stops controversial programs and Executive Orders; regulations that harm businesses and consumers; and unnecessary climate change rules.

It also continues long-standing pro-life protections.

To close, I want to thank the Members and staff on both sides of the aisle for their hard work. This is a very good bill, and I look forward to supporting it as it moves through the process.
