Chairman Womack: “Responsible approach to rein in spending”

WASHINGTON – House Budget Committee Chairman and appropriator Steve Womack issued the following statement after President Trump sent a $15 billion rescissions request to Congress.

“The President’s rescissions package truly reflects a commonsense and responsible approach to rein in needless government spending. I thank the Administration for identifying dormant funds and recommending potential savings. As the House Budget Committee continues building the budget resolution for fiscal year 2019, I look forward to presenting a plan that reflects the same conservative commitment to fiscal responsibility.”
