Press Release

Washington, DC — U.S. Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14) released a statement today following the release of the administration’s fiscal year 2018 budget request:

“I commend President Trump for releasing a budget that acknowledges our fiscal crisis and makes a serious effort to address Washington’s out-of-control spending, waste and abuse. While some growth assumptions may be optimistic, it is a good blueprint of the President’s priorities. We face difficult choices as we work to continue to grow jobs, protect our nation, and reduce the deficit and the nearly $20 trillion national debt. Now it is Congress’ turn, and I look forward to working with my colleagues to crafting a fiscal year 2018 spending package that sets forth our priorities to ensure fiscal accountability while promoting economic growth.”
