Congressman Scott Taylor Statement on FY17 Appropriations
As a member of the House Committee on Appropriations, I will fight to ensure that Congress does its job by keeping the government open. I support a full year appropriations bill for the remainder of FY17, as this would allow for an increase in defense spending while ensuring that vital government services aren’t shut down for the American taxpayers. Congress has been enacting continuing resolutions for years now. This hurts, among other things, multi-year defense projects, thus reducing predictability and driving up costs in the long term. An omnibus bill is much preferable.
