Fully Funding our Military and Keeping our Government Open

WASHINGTON, D.C. , February 6, 2018 | Andre Castro (202-225-6105) | comments

U.S. Representative Bill Flores (R-Texas) issued the following statement regarding the House passage of H.R. 1892, the Further Extension of Continuing Appropriations Act:

“Today, the House voted to keep the federal government open, extend critical health care programs and provide our military with the funding they need for the remainder of fiscal year 2018. It is crucial that our military have budgetary certainty and be fully funded at the levels that military leaders need as they respond to the emerging global threats. In addition to keeping the government open, this bipartisan funding bill also provides important health care extensions including a two-year extension of funding for Community Health Care Centers, and my bill H.R. 3900, the Youth Empowerment Act. I strongly urge the Senate to pass this important bipartisan bill that fully funds our military, keeps our government open and funds critical health care programs.”

It was a busy week in the House. We passed the Intelligence Authorization Act and the Unfunded Mandates Information and Transparency Act, and the Energy and Commerce Committee passed my bipartisan bill – the Advanced Nuclear Fuel Availability Act.
