Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Today, as the House of Representatives prepares to vote on annual funding for the Departments of Transportation and Housing and Urban Development, Paul Hodes unveiled a comprehensive list of proposed cuts designed to responsibly rein in the federal deficit. Most of these proposed cuts, which total over $3 billion, will be voted on this evening.

"Families across New Hampshire are making difficult decisions about their spending, and it's time that Washington did the same," said Hodes. "For too long, both parties have willfully spent with no regard for our nation's debt. I'm committed to reining in Washington's spending, and these cuts are a strong first step to getting our nation's financial house in order."

The spending cuts proposed by Hodes will be voted on in several amendments to the sweeping spending bill. In total, the Hodes proposed cuts amount to $3,238,614,450. For a full list of the spending cuts unveiled by Hodes, see attached report.
