FY2018 Budget Plan Creates Opportunities to Overcome Challenges, Meet National Priorities

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s detailed FY2018 budget request, which was presented to Congress today:

“President Trump’s budget lays out in detail his administration’s vision for how the federal government can best serve the American people.  It is an opportunity for Congress to reexamine programs across the government, and to address the significant fiscal challenges that face our country.  The Appropriations Committee will immediately begin to hold hearings and do the work necessary to prepare appropriations bills that responsibly provide for our national security and other priorities.  We have a lot of work to do in a short amount of time.”

Senate Appropriations subcommittees have already scheduled hearings to begin reviewing the FY2018 budget, a process that will continue in coming months.  Visit https://www.appropriations.senate.gov/ for details.
