Byrne Statement on President Trump’s Budget Proposal
Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) issued the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2018.
Byrne said: “I applaud President Trump and his administration for their commitment to scaling back the federal government. It is critical that we roll back the federal bureaucracy and ensure taxpayer money is being used in an efficient and effective manner. I am also pleased to see the President focus on increasing funding for our nation’s military.
“As with any President’s budget, this is just a proposal to guide Congress as we go through the government funding process. It will ultimately be Congress that makes the decision on where federal money is spent, and I look forward to working with the President in that process.”
