WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Budget Committee Chairman Diane Black released the following statement following President Trump’s budget submission:
“I appreciate the White House’s submission on how we can be better stewards of taxpayer dollars and strengthen our national security. We are all committed to investing in our men and women in uniform to ensure that we are the strongest military force in the world. The complex international and military challenges we face require special attention, which the previous administration neglected. At home, I’m pleased that the administration is committed to reviewing how our agencies operate to better streamline programs and reduce overlap.
“We look forward to continuing our discussions with the White House, with our committee members and with the full House as we work towards introducing the Fiscal Year 2018 budget.”
