Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) today issued the following statement after voting in favor of the H.Con.Res. 25, the House Republican Budget and H.R. 933, which funds the government for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2013:
"Today's votes demonstrate Republicans in the House remain ready to make the difficult but necessary decisions to put our country on a more sustainable and prosperous path. The Budget Resolution passed by the House is a responsible plan to rein in spending, reform the tax code, restore economic growth, and balance the budget. We also voted to fund the government for the remainder of the year while making adjustments to prevent meat inspectors from being furloughed and to ensure our men and women in uniform have access to tuition assistance."
