Hultgren Opposes $1 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill

Press Release

Washington, DC — U.S. Representatives Randy Hultgren (IL-14) today released a statement after opposing House passage of H.R. 244, the FY2017 Consolidated Appropriations Act, a $1.1 trillion bill to fund the government through September:

“I cannot in good conscience vote for this massive spending bill with little reforms or reductions to the spending of taxpayer dollars. It does nothing to reverse the growth of our national debt now nearing $20 trillion. Another continuing resolution moves us farther from regular order and the path of meaningful debt reduction. It doesn’t follow through on the promises we made to Americans calling for a change in direction. Our constituents, our kids and our grandkids deserve better.”
