Westerman Votes No on Continuing Resolution
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement following his vote against a continuing resolution Wednesday (September 30):
“My vote against the continuing resolution was a vote against the status quo,” Westerman said. “My goal as a Representative in the U.S. Congress is to restore fiscal responsibility by stopping deficit spending and reducing our debt. The first step in doing this is to pass appropriations bills in regular order and then work with the Senate to resolve differences. We should not be running our government with last minute votes before deadlines and especially when these bills are thrown together by the Senate that refuses take up legislation passed in regular order by the House. This has happened time and again. It is no way to run our government."
