Shuster Statement on Obama Budget


Location: Washington, DC

The following is the statement of Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) on the President's Fiscal Year 2014 budget proposal:

"I welcome the President's interest in addressing the Nation's infrastructure needs. These issues are critical to the country's economic growth and competitiveness in the global marketplace. One of the most essential questions in this debate is how do we finance infrastructure maintenance and improvements without adding to our debt? The President's budget repeats his call to increase spending without identifying a viable means to pay for it. We can't just keep adding to our tab and expect future generations to foot the bill. We have the responsibility to address America's infrastructure needs with an equally responsible solution that doesn't burden our children with more debt. I remain committed to working with everyone, across the aisle and across the country, to continue reforming programs, focus our resources where they are most needed, and build consensus on how to responsibly meet the needs of our Nation's aging infrastructure."
