Woodall Statement on House FY2017 Budget Proposal
(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall (GA 07) – who serves on the House Budget Committee – issued the following statement after introduction of its Fiscal Year 2017 budget proposal, “A Balanced Budget for a Stronger America.”
“America faces significant economic and fiscal challenges, and today we on the Budget Committee introduced a balanced budget that confronts those challenges head-on,” said Rep. Woodall. “Each year I’ve been in Congress, the House has introduced and passed a budget that balances in 10 years or less, and each year we’ve partnered with the American people to present a clear alternative to the Obama Administration’s policies of never-ending deficit spending and ever-growing debt. Through a combination of savings and economic growth measures, our budget prioritizes national security, empowers the American people rather than Washington, and cooperatively produces $7 trillion in deficit reduction over a 10-year window.”
“We have made a lot of progress to get America moving again, but there is much more that we can do together. I am committed to moving this budget and this policy roadmap forward and continuing to grapple—one-by-one—with the challenges burdening hard-working American families. Working together, we can absolutely ensure that tomorrow is better than yesterday.”
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.
