Freshman Class Brings Fiscal Responsibility to Washington

From the office of Rep. Joe Walsh (R, Illinois 8th District)…

Washington- Congressman Joe Walsh (IL-8) voted in favor of the Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations Bill that passed the House today. The bill provides a spending level of $51.1 billion, which is $1.6 billion less than last year.

Walsh stated: “I have held over 120 town halls back home, and the American people have made it clear that they are tired of big government policies. Today’s vote proves that Washington is listening. Before my freshman colleagues and I came to Washington, the dialogue was spend, spend, spend. Now we are making real spending cuts, which proves that the freshman class is bringing real change and fiscal responsibility to Washington. While I voted for larger cuts, I am overall pleased with the final package– these cuts continue to build on the cuts from last year.”
