WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) – member of the Senate Appropriations Committee – today issued the following statement after President Trump released his budget request for FY2020:
“I am encouraged the president’s budget outline fully supports the implementation of the VA MISSION Act, includes a significant and well-deserved pay raise for our troops and bolsters border security and immigration enforcement at our ports of entry. I remain committed to working with President Trump to restore fiscal responsibility in Washington while keeping our country safe and secure.
“I am still assessing the president’s outline and I look forward to seeing his full budget next week – specifically as it pertains to programs under my Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies’ funding jurisdiction. As we gather more details and conduct oversight hearings with department and agency heads over the next several months, I will work with my colleagues and the administration in a bipartisan manner to fund the priorities most important to Kansans and Americans.”
