House Clears FY2016 Appropriations Bill
(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall (GA 07) issued the following statement regarding his support of the House-passed omnibus spending legislation for FY2016 federal government operations.
“Last-minute, omnibus spending packages are not the way it should get done – and it is critical in 2016 that the Senate partner with the House in passing each appropriations bill as intended. Returning to regular order allows the American people to drive the process and results in a much better product. I’ve been encouraged by the progress made on the House side, but there is clearly more to do as we return to governing the way our Founders intended.”
Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes the majority of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process, as well as serving on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and Budget Committee.
