Rep. Comer praises passage of House Appropriations Package

By Michael Gossum

WASHINGTON - Congressman James Comer (KY-01) released the following statement following the passage of all 12 appropriations bills in the House of Representatives on September 14, 2017:
"It is the responsibility of Congress to pass all appropriations bills before October 1. The last time the House of Representatives passed all 12 appropriations bills on time was nearly a decade ago. Today, the House fulfilled that duty and passed an appropriations package that cuts unnecessary spending, makes a down payment on our nation's defense and border security and provides funding for important national priorities, such as fighting the opioid epidemic.

"I came to Congress intent on reining in out-of-control government spending by working to pass a full appropriations package as the Constitution requires. Today, we did that in the House. I now call on the Senate to do the same."
Michael Gossum is Communications Director for Rep. James Comer, (KY-1)
