Kustoff Statement on the President’s Budget Blueprint
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative David Kustoff (TN-08) today released the following statement on President Trump's Fiscal Year 2018 budget blueprint:
“I appreciate the President’s fiscally-responsible budget for 2018, which includes a $4.5 trillion reduction in spending and balances, something the American people never got from the previous administration. This proposal will be valuable as the Budget Committee works on a plan to introduce in the full House.
“I am committed to working with the Trump Administration to reduce tax burdens, eliminate unnecessary bureaucracy, secure our borders and expand resources to bolster our military. However, we must protect our agriculture community, and I want to reassure Tennessee farmers that I will work tirelessly to ensure they have the funding necessary to maintain and grow their operations.”
