Hensarling Statement on Final Passage of the Continuing Resolution


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Congressman Jeb Hensarling (TX-05), chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, released the following statement today upon final passage of a continuing resolution to fund the government through the end of the fiscal year.

"Not only did the Senate join the House in passing legislation to fund the government through the end of the fiscal year at reduced spending levels, but for the first time in nearly four years, the Senate actually produced a budget.

"Though the House and Senate budgets differ greatly -- for example, the House Republican budget balances while the Senate Democrat budget never does -- the mere existence of a Senate budget is a victory as it allows us to have a true debate on the fiscal course of our nation.

"With the continuing resolution completed and both chambers putting forth a budget, the House and Senate can begin working together to pass a budget solution that I hope will reduce out of control government spending and address the true drivers of our unsustainable debt."
