Estes Statement on Passage of Budget
WASHINGTON—Congressman Ron Estes (R-Kansas) released the following statement following passage of H.R. 1892:
"Passage of the budget today in the House provides stability for our government and much-needed funding for our troops who selflessly serve our nation," said Rep. Estes.
"We're following through on the promises we've made to the American people. We've reformed taxes to boost the economy and fully funded our military to keep us safe and support our veterans. Now it's time for serious, comprehensive entitlement reform to get our fiscal house back in order."
"I'm glad that House Leadership has pledged to hold a vote on a balanced budget amendment before the next spending deadline. I’m also calling on the White House to put forward mandatory spending reforms that will put our nation on a sustainable path to fiscal stability."
Ron Estes is a 5th generation Kansan and represents Kansas’ 4th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. He serves on the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, and the House Committee on Homeland Security.
