Aderholt Supports Continuing Resolution that Prevents a Government Shutdown and Protects Military and Veterans

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04), Chairman of the Agriculture Subcommittee on the House Appropriations Committee, released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed H.R. 933, a Continuing Resolution (CR) that funds federal programs through the end of the fiscal year on September 30, 2013.

"As sequestration is a less than optimal way to cut spending, a Continuing Resolution is a less than optimal way to budget. That said, it is important to note that we are cutting spending, avoiding a government shut down and providing the Pentagon some flexibility to mitigate the impact of the sequester cuts. No one said that pumping the brakes on runaway spending would be easy or that the Democrats would not fight us every step of the way. It is my hope that the Senate begins to understand that spending cuts and budgets are not optional, they are absolutely imperative to getting our nation on fiscally sound path," said Aderholt.
