Bourdeaux Statement Following Opposition to Procedural Vote

July 27, 2021

WASHINGTON — Today, United States Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) released the following statement following her “no” vote on H.Res. 555, the Rule providing consideration for H.R. 4502, the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, Agriculture, Rural Development, Energy and Water Development, Financial Services and General Government, Interior, Environment, Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Act, 2022: 

“As the former Director of Georgia’s Senate Budget and Evaluation Office during the Great Recession, I understand the importance of implementing a cohesive budgeting and spending plan. While many of the programs and priorities in these bills are ones that I support, I strongly urge my colleagues to adopt this legislation in the context of an overarching budget resolution. I have previously voiced my desire to vote on a budget  that stabilizes the national debt and puts us on a path to fiscal sustainability before Congress considers any appropriations bills,” said Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux.

“I thank Chairwoman DeLauro and House leadership for their hard work and I look forward to working in partnership to get our fiscal house in order. ”
