Rep. Comstock On House Budget Resolution

October 5, 2017
Press Release

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA) released the following statement on the Budget Resolution vote that occurred today:

“I did not vote for the non-binding Budget Resolution that the House passed today because of my concerns about the negative effects on our federal employees and my longstanding commitment to represent them.  As I have consistently maintained, we cannot balance the federal budget on the backs of our federal workforce.  My district has tens of thousands of professionals and support staff who work to protect our national security and homeland, conduct groundbreaking medical research, serve in federal law enforcement, and more.  With multiple hurricanes hitting the United States and its territories, FEMA employees, for example, have been putting in 12 hour shifts with many away from their families and they will continue to do so for months.  I will continue to work with my colleagues as the budget process continues to move forward.  I also remain a strong supporter of tax relief for our families and businesses to make us competitive again.”
