Congressman Scott Taylor Statement on President Trump's Budget Proposal

March 17, 2017
Press Release
Contact: Scott Weldon (202) 225-4215

President Trump’s budget proposal is just that, a proposal; Article 1 Section 9 of the Constitution reserves the power of the purse strings to Congress. While we only have top line numbers from the President, I am happy to see the defense sequester being pushed away, but unhappy to hear funding for the Chesapeake Bay cleanup has been cut in the budget. I look forward to working with my colleagues on the Appropriations Committee, the rest of Congress, and the President to ensure completion of our constitutional duty.
