Pete Sessions Statement on the House's Action to Prevent Devastating Cuts and Provide Transparency

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-Dallas), a Member of House Republican Leadership, today released the following statement in response to House passage of H.R. 5827, the Sequestration Transparency Act of 2012, which requires President Obama to submit a report to Congress detailing how the Administration plans to implement the across-the-board spending cuts scheduled to be enforced in January 2013:

"Earlier this year, House Republicans passed a common-sense package of spending reductions and reforms to replace the dangerous cuts to our national defense and key domestic priorities. Although the House has acted on a responsible plan to prevent sequestration, the Democrat-led Senate and White House continually neglect to offer a credible proposal to replace these arbitrary cuts that will threaten our national security, deprive our nation's troops of critical resources and cause massive layoffs.

"Due to the inaction of Senate leaders and President Obama, the House passed the Sequestration Transparency Act today in order to prepare for these devastating cuts. The American people, small businesses and our nation's servicemen and women deserve full transparency on the Administration's implementation plan and the damaging effects of sequestration."
