US Representative Sue Myrick (NC-09) has released the following statement after voting in favor of the short term Continuing Resolution passed by the House this afternoon. This bill funds the government for the next two weeks, and includes spending cuts to save American taxpayers $4.01 billion.
"Once again, the House has passed a fiscally responsible bill that continues to fund the federal government while saving taxpayer dollars," Myrick said. "Without addressing spending levels, we cannot hope to get our fiscal house in order. It is my hope that the Senate quickly passes this resolution, giving the House and Senate more time to work toward passing a long-term Continuing Resolution for the remainder of the fiscal year that will reduce spending, grow our economy, and allow business to create jobs".
