House Approves President Trump’s Nearly $15 Billion Rescissions Package to Rein in Excessive Spending
WASHINGTON, DC: On June 7, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 3, the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act. Congressman Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) released the following statement in support of the bill’s passage:
“Today, the House of Representatives passed common-sense legislation to begin the long process of reining in our out of control federal spending. The nearly $15 billion that would be cut by this legislation sat untouched in various government accounts for years, and should be returned to the treasury.
Passing this bill is small but positive progress toward balancing our federal budget and reducing our $21 trillion federal debt. I am committed to working with President Trump and my colleagues in Congress to further rein in our federal spending and reduce the debt with which we are saddling future generations.”
