Congressman French Hill Statement on President’s Budget

WASHINGTON – Today, after President Donald Trump released his proposal to balance the budget, Congressman French Hill (AR-02) stated:

“I appreciate the president and his team for their hard work and commitment to tackling our Nation’s spending problems. Arkansans and people across the country have made it clear they want Congress and our president to work together to produce a balanced budget. While this proposal provides some guidance on how the president wants to accomplish this, it is ultimately Congress that decides the federal spending priorities. As we work through the budget process in the House, I remain committed to limited government that spurs innovation and economic growth, aids the most vulnerable parts of our population, and most importantly strengthens our national security.”
